I really enjoy making things. When I was a kid, I didn't have much toys, so I learned to make things out of cardboard and paper. Now, I make practical things out of wood because I feel like I should justify my time in the shop. I am taught by my surroundings since I have no formal training in anything that is of use to me. Everywhere I go I look at designs, break it down and appreciate them. I then add those ideas to my projects which is the physical interpretation of my surroundings.

I just have a knack to make things without too much planning nor concerns. Every mistake is a learning opportunity. So I don't take my woodworking too seriously. Which is also why I have just enough tools to get the job done. I keep it fun that way.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. I love your work. I have always wondered how people with sawdust in their veins handle their cravings for woodwork when they live in apartments or condos or anywhere without a workshop. I will follow your progress.

Great way to do woodwork – keep it simple. Let’s face it, you can do a lot of woodwork without expensive tools. People have been doing it for centuries. You’ll like Niki here on this site – he also does a lot of woodwork with fewer tools and machines than most. And, he’s very good at it too.
We’ll look forward to your input on this site. Maybe you can teach us some things about doing woodwork with a smaller budget – that would be great!

Welcome!

If you like working with wood, you’re in the right place. Welcome. And I complain about the space in my 24X12 shop! Great work,
