I accidentally ran into woodworking when I was planning to do my wainscoting for my house. I pick up a free table saw and the rest is history. Now I have my own very small shop. It's a 9' x 20' room that is secluded (lucky me) from the house. It sounds big but when you start filling it with machines, trust me 9' x 20' is very small. So far I have a cabinet TS, bandsaw, drill press, workbench, router table, planer, jointer, 2 bench sander, scroll saw, oscillating sander, 60 gal air compressor, dust collector, and miter saw. Except for the workbench, everything is on wheels. But the size of my shop is not actually my major problem. In fact I am thankful for my shop. My real problem for now is TIME. Yes, time. I don't have a lot or should I say not enough of it. I have a regular job which is an industrial mechanic and I work from afternoon through evening. And that's why I only have the morning for my shop which is not enough for me. That's why I can't wait to retire. :)

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.

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
