As a young child, I apparently enjoyed hammering nails into tree stumps, maybe woodworking takes me back to that place. Whatever it is that drove me to do woodworking, it stuck.

I've been slowly developing my skills since taking shop class in grade 7 and expect to keep learning until the Ents catch up with me. I tend to have a jack-of-all-trades approach to everything that I do, so when people ask what kind of woodworking I do, my answer is kind of long winded.

I am now at the point where I want to develop my skills in joinery and furniture building and hopefully my other experiences with carpentry, carving, turning, etc can play a small part in that work.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months 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…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Have your say...
