below is a section that I took from my own website, www.WoodworkersResource.com. Read it and see if it doesn't seem Lumber Jocks was created just for me! Craig

"I have always been interested in how things work and in making things with my hands. There’s just something extremely satisfying about building a tangible, useful item with your own two hands. Woodworking is something that I’m very passionate about. But it’s not always been that way. I got “hooked” on woodworking a little over 10 years ago. This was, by the way, a long time after I was out of school, so I couldn’t go back and take a shop class. Kids now are lucky to even have the opportunity to take shop in high school because it’s been taken out of most school systems. I had no way of learning except through trial and error and books, lots of books. I love getting into a subject and finding out all I can about it, and woodworking was no exception. And books were the only place I could find information on woodworking. This was a very isolated way to learn. At times I wish that I had a place to go for information where I could share ideas with other woodworkers and find answers to questions I had. Also, it would have been nice to have a place to find inspiration from other woodworkers by seeing the projects they were working on and to learn more about how they work wood."

I wish Lumber Jocks would have been around 10 years ago! (but then I wouldn't have even known how to type in a web address!)

(below is just a little about my website and what I'm trying to do with it)

Woodworkers Resource is dedicated to being a source of information and inspiration on woodworking. These are a few of the things you will find at Woodworkers Resource: Our video podcast is all about helping new and experienced woodworkers get the most out of their time in the shop, we also give you a place in our blog to post questions and comments about anything you see on the website or on the videos, a tips and techniques page that helps you become a better, more efficient woodworker. We also have interviews with other woodworkers in our Featured Woodworker section, (the next best thing to being in your own shop is being in someone else’s shop and learning how they do things), and an archive of our monthly newsletter on everything woodworking.

Thanks for reading

Craig

I am a little unorthodox, being a shop teacher in all, but my son is 4 and he is out in the shop all the time. He knows to wear glasses and ear muffs on most tools. He has ran a RO sander all on his own sanding some raised panel doors for my wife’s armoire. He plays with a tape measure and acutally measures items, once he learns to read the tape, he will be a real assett. He drilled holes using the drill press to make wooden wheels for a toy truck all by himself (obviously I changed the bit and set up the depth stop). He has fired the brad nailer with me holding the nailgun. And he has used my quik grips to glue scrap pieces together to make a panel (imitating dad just on a smaller scale). Best of all, he loves to sweep up the shop. The day that I will cry is when he learns you aren’t supposed to like cleaning up. On the other hand, to be safe, I do find myself unplugging tools when not in use that I used to not do, like my unisaw that never moves. Trying to see a 6-1 225# guy crawling under a table saw to plug it in isn’t a pretty sight, especially with loose pants :). My son loves to imitate, and if he is going to try something, teach him to do it correctly. For example, my son knows how to plug in a cord into an outlet. He knows that he can get died (as he puts it) if he plugs anything else into it, and he has to ask to plug or unplug something each time. A different approach to child raising, but it has worked so far for my wife and myself.
