Let's see...I have been working with wood for about 10 years (self-taught), and started doing some outdoor art shows 3 years ago. The art shows are sporadic as it takes a lot of time from family and I can;t make a full living doing that.

I am fortunate enough to have an uncle who owns a big steel warehouse/barn about 1/4 mile from my house where he has given me a 15' x 50' room for a dedicated workshop (already had 110 & 220 wired with a spraybooth w/ exhaust fan!). I used to do the 2-card garage shop thing, but there is nothing like having all the tools out and stationary and ready to rumble at a moment's notice...I am definitely blessed! I call it my happy place.

And like everyone else, I have a big list of furniture projects because I just can't spend money on furniture anymore when I can make it better for 1/3 the cost!! but that means we have to defer gratification until I have time to get through all the things we want. :)

What else....I started out doing lots of arts and crafts (1/4 saw white oak is still a favorite...LOVE the smell!), but have lately gotten into more sculpted elements and curves and using contrasting woods.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Wow! Thank you all for such a warm welcome…I wasn’t expecting that. This looks like a fun place to spend some time and I can easily see how, as many of you have siad, it can be addictive. :)
