Location: Wilmington Delaware

68yr old Registered Nurse rekindling my love of working with wood. Set to retire this December and will spend my winters building things for the family and summers fishing. Can't wait to get started!
AS OF 12/17/10 I HAVE RETIRED AND PLAN TO MAKE LOTS OF SAWDUST! Making gifts for Christmas,
Time has pasted and I am now 71 and still going strong. Finally have the shop I have been wanting for years. I spend 4 to 5 hours a day in my shope builing shop projects and other things for friends and family

Thanks for the welcome guys. It is really nice to know there is a site that gives excellent support and advice. I have been exploring the Wood Wisper web site and find it enlightening and entertaining. I have not done a whole lot major project since high school which ended in 1962 but now that retirement looms I look forward to spending time in my shop

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself almost a year ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

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

Thanks for the welcome and the comments. As soon as I can I will upload my first woodworking project since 9th grade shop class. It is a nite stand I made for by Grand daughter for her 13th birthday. I will try this tonight
