Location: Antioch, Illinois

My dad was a carpenter that passed on his knowledge of working with wood when I was a kid. I started working with some of his tools when I was about 10 and have been working with wood, and collecting the tools I desired for my shop ever since. (5 decades and still collecting!) I've been a union carpenter in northern Illinois for the last 38 years. With the housing situation not getting any better, I decided to retire this past January. I now spend an ever increasing amount of time in my shop.

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

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…

I too find myself working in my little shop far more often than usual, and the reason is the same as yours :-(
Let’s hope in the future, and for now let’s learn to woodwork better and better!
