I started woodworking recently, in 2008, although I've always liked the tools aspect. I have an engineering background and always liked that industrial stuff. My grandfather used to do lots of woodworking and I used to like to "help" him (watching mostly).

Just spent the past year transitioning to a new job 1,200 miles from my old one; now in the Philadelphia area. And had to rebuild my shop in the new house. Using it more for home move-in projects than anything else these days.

I am continuing to build my shop, evolving from basic construction and household projects to actual wood projects.

I also like photography and travel, and am consumed by my real job at times, so I have to balance it all.

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
