Been working with wood for many years now, since shop class in junior high school. I may not be good at it, but I do so love it! Enough that I now make my living doing it.
I enjoy looking at other woodworker's shops. I always seem to come away with a new idea about something from the experience. Not to mention I am an insufferable tool junkie, as many of us are, and just running my fingers over a well tuned block plane makes my spine tingle.
I enjoy making boxes of all types, storage systems, and grandfather clocks! What is a grandfather clock but a big box with a bunch of moving parts stuffed inside anyway. I also enjoy workbenches, due to the history behind most of them, I find the very thought of them magical.

-- Adventure? Heh! Excitement? Heh! A Woodworker craves not these things!

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

Nice welcome, thank you all. Although as warned, I’m finding it quite addictive. Inspiational, though.

For those wondering why I haven’t posted any pictures of anything YET…. We are in the middle of a HUGE move! One of those life changing deals that only comes along once or twice in a lifetime. So at the moment, no shop exists to show, and no projects are out of storage to be shown, either! I promise, as soon as I get the shop up to spec, and/or some projects out of Public Storage… You all will be the first to see them! :)
