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

In talking with some of my woodworking friends on this subject, I learned that most were not comfortable with kids being in their shops because of safety concerns. Granted, there are extra precautions that must be taken when kids are present, but...
