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

Hey Phil,

Not sure if you still frequent Lumberjocks. Doesn’t really look like it but I read in one of your old posts that you run a small mill/kiln operation near Lomira.
I’m just getting started with woodworking and I’m in Fond du Lac.

I’m looking for a better source of hardwood than Menards…
