I did woodwork at school where I made two clocks and a chess table - all quite tricky pieces. I didn't do much after leaving school though, just made a box for a backgammon board.

Twenty years later, I have had a chance to do some woodworking again. I made a box inspired by one I saw here on LumberJocks. A few things have happened over the last couple of years that make it a good time to start doing some more woodwork, so let's see what I can do next.

-- I may have lost my marbles, but I still have my love of woodworking

Glad to see you found LJ’s. This is one of the best sites on the Web, that I have visited. Speaking of visting. I made the trip to your country about 20 years ago and found the people to be some of the friendlist that I have ever met. I worked for Boral Bricks, in the USA for 27 years before retiring in 2007 and the trip to your country was for a plant managers meeting there.

Thank you, I’m a retired home builder who specialized in stairways, cabinetry,wine cellars, ect. I tried playing golf and found myself going back to my small garage shop. Now I’m in my shop at 4am every morning building Beer Mugs from my vast supply of saved scrap wood(firewood to some). I’m new to this and would like to be a part of sharing and receiving information from my fellow woodworkers. Don’t know how to post PICS yet, any suggestions for a rookie?
