Location: East Lansing, MI

Beginning woodworker; father of three children seven and under. I find myself far more interested in making shop fixtures and jigs than I do furniture, likely due to my low skill as a beginner. If I were to attempt furniature, I would be frustrated and unhappy with the result. For now, learning to make a mortice and tenon joint on a mallet seems about my speed.

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, BCH.
Noticed your positive mark on my first submitted project photo. Thank you. I promise to get better snaps
on it. I’m just a couple days into LJ’s as well.
Came across Yogi Berra’s saying yesterday: You can observe a lot just by watching.
Great line for us newbies.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself just about 2 years 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…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

You must manage your time well if you find any time at all to work on jigs or configure your space with such little ones!!
