Just thought I should take a moment to introduce myself here before getting too far into sharing projects. I’m joining LJs as a way to supplement my self-teaching. I’ve been interested in woodworking for a long time now, but I just gained my own shop back in August of last year when my wife and I left the apartment life behind. My shop is in half of a 2 car garage, and is mostly populated with craigslist specials. I really enjoy turning, but currently I have been working ...
Hello everyone,I have recently been encouraged to join and participate in this great community since I have been making videos for about 6 months now. I’m always looking for new quality channels to subscribe to, so I figured I would introduce myself to the LumberJocks crew. Maybe I have some material that would be of interest to you.I started my YouTube journey when I found the channels for Matthias Wandel and Jimmy Diresta. Now I am making my own material and having a blast doing it...

HI EVERYONE! Like many, I came here for a resource of knowledge, inspiration, and entertainment. I have always enjoyed doing home projects, more specifically working with wood. If the project name is tiling, I despise you. Growing up it started with bird houses, pinewood derby, and shop class. Now an adult with young children, my time is their time and projects revolve around them or the house. I started with a simple bed and shelves and onto a 12’ tabletop. I now want to get ...
Call me Dreek (a nickname given to me by my late brother; a name which I have not heard spoken aloud in probably 15 or 20 years.) I’m a semi-old guy who’s just getting started in woodworking. After playing around with some brain-dead simple power-tool projects that served a purpose (moldings, a shop-built air cleaner) I’ve decided that hand work will be my thing. This is a hobby, there is no hurry, I don’t like loud machines or dust, and I especially don’t l...
I have posted 8 videos on YouTube thus far and have never introduced myself. I enjoy watching other woodworkers introduction and shop tour videos, so I thought I might as well do one and get it over with. I give a few facts about myself in my home page here on Lumberjocks, but I go into a little more depth in the video. Watch the video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZIV_OyTaCo
Howdy all, I just wanted to reintroduce myself here, I joined LJ many years ago and sadly didn’t do anything but lurk. I’m really putting forth an effort to get more involved with the community and share as much as I can from my shop. A couple years ago, I decided that I wasn’t satisfied in my career and began my new occupation as a custom furniture/gift builder. Although that change occurred a couple years ago, I’m still trying to figure out how I want this to wo...
Hi, I’m a self taught furniture maker and general woodworker living in the UK. I have a great passion for wood in all its forms, and working with wood helps me de-stress. My website (WOmadeOD Blog) was my first attempt at sharing my passion with others, however I never seemed to find enough enthusiasm to keep it updated to begin with. Recently though, I have branched into video, and this seems to come more naturally, and provide more feedback. My YouTube site (WOmadeOD YouTube)...
It all began in the beginning where most things begin; maybe everything does but I like to leave room for error since I am very prone to those. In the beginning were those men in my life who were for all practical purposes expert craftsmen whether it be wood working, machining or mechanics. As I grew up amidst these time honored tradesmen I developed an acute sense of disdain for those things which required forethought, patience and hard work to achieve. Growing up on a tobacco farm where the...
I must confess up front that I’m a great procrastinator! I start things and take months and even years to finish them, if I ever do. I have great PLANS for projects that sit on the shelf for a long time. Lately, however, I’ve made some progress in this woodworking hobby I’ve gotten into and I take delight in seeing something I’ve completed. If you ask my wife, she’ll confirm that I will frequently walk out into my workshop during commercial breaks of TV sho...
