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...
The fasten seat-belts sign is on, please remain in your seats and buckle in…. Because I frankly have no idea where this is about to go. First, thanks to all for the warm welcomes to LumberJocks. As of this writing I am a 36 year old, 13 year married, father of a 2 (Boy 4 and Girl 2) working professional. I have been around wood working tools for as long as I can remember. In life I see myself as a curious tinkerer. This often time makes me feel like I lack focus, but I know that i...
Hello Fellow Woodworkers! Please allow me to introduce myself! My name is Lee and I am a woodworker. It has been three years since I first felt the obsession take hold and it gets stronger every day. The force is so strong in this one that I am now one year into a two year long woodworking course in Malmö, Sweden. The blog idea originally started out as somewhere for me to showcase my school projects. Wait, hang on! It’s actually a result of my school deciding to have an exhibiti...
I want to introduce my self to the LJ community. I have worked with wood as a pastime most of my life. In fact in the ‘80s I built a 23’ sailboat out of wood. However after that I only dabbled in wood working, mainly doing fix ups, repairs and small additions to the house. In December of last year, my wife came up with an idea to add some shelves to concrete columns in our back porch. This turned out to be a bigger project then either of os imagined. However the end result was ...
Hello, My name is Jeremy (firm cyber hand shake). This is my first blog entry for my account here at LumberJocks. Short intro. Please excuse my spelling. Spelling has been a struggle for me my whole life.A bit about my self. I was born in Marburg Germany, but have lived the larger part of my life on the west coast of the USA. I love anything I can do with my hands. Pottery, glass work, automotive work, carpentry, cooking, brewing beer… you get the idea. I love to learn and share. I a...
Hello Lumberjocks, I wanted to take this opportunity to say hello and introduce myself. I am a relatively new woodworking enthusiast. I am in process of setting up my shop for the second time. I am a member of a few other on-line communities, but am very excited to be here. I really like the functionality of the site and the level of activity going on here. Other hobbies and interests I have include: Fishing, boating – generally doing the cabin thing (if you live in MN, ...
Happy Monday o/ I recently moved from a teeny one-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn Heights to a house in the sticks a few hours north. It’s a lot of space to fill. I get to have a reasonable dresser, a bed AND couch instead of a ratty old futon, etc. I started furniture shopping and my jaw hit the floor. I half jokingly suggested to my favorite bartender that I could outfit a wood shop for the cost of the dresser I wanted and make my own ugly as sin but sturdy and functional furn...
