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 almost a year 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…

You have a very nice shop with lots of nice equipment and tools and, being a carpenter and joiner for so many years, you know how to use them. Congratulations!!!

Jamie – nice to see a Scot on here. I have a lot of family in Motherwell, Edinburgh, and on Skye. Looks like you do a lot of nice work with others. Cheers.
