I've been woodworking for about a year, and have a bunch of half-finished projects to show for it. I've been finishing them up one at a time, finally, just so I can start some new things. Woodworking is just amazing for improving a bad mood or making stress disappear, so I spend as much time as possible with it. I've got everything to learn, so many things to master, and there's just not enough time in the week.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks! This is a great place to get – or give – advice about woodworking on the forums and the project posts are a wonderful source of new ideas. I look forward to seeing your projects and posts.

To get the most feedback on your projects, it’s best to only post 1 or 2 at a time. This way you will get feedback over several days and from a wide variety of members.

Please enjoy your membership.

-- Gary

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…

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

I`m glad someone else has seen some Birdseye pine.
It`s pretty neat looking wood.
Thanks for letting me know about your find.

Achychris; I do all my tapers on the 6” joiner planer.Set the length of the taper on infeed and do one pass on each side until the taper is the shape you want it and voila! Finish sanding and it looks good. Make sure you press down on the taper end at all times.
