First off let me start by introducing myself. My name is John Gray, i’m currently 33 years old and live in Spencerport New York. I’ve been married to the love of my life for 7 years now and have 2 beautiful daughters (hence the title of my blog “3 girls and a woodworker”). I guess i’ve been into wood working for most of my life, i grew up with a dad that spent a lot of time in the workshop building things. He worked primarily with pine (becasue it was cheap) ...
Back in Feb, 2009, after arriving for the first part of my summer holidays, I was wondering for the birthday gift for my 3rd. son, Francisco. All of them are very keen of chess, we have a lot of plastic, Chinese made sets. So I decided it was time to purchase a heirloom chessboard set. I goggled in Buenos Aires city for chessboards, but didn’t find any that drew my attention up.So I goggled worldwide. A lot of Stauton house, fancy sets, etc. But it cropped out an occurence in Youtube : B...
Hello Lumber Jocks! Yet another unexperienced, developing craftsman has arrived to lean on this community and hopefully contribute in a positive way. I’ve signed up here because I’ve found that I’ve been browsing the forums more and more lately and this community looks helpful and friendly. I’m very much a DIY kind of guy and will naively accept any project that I’m completely unprepared for, just for the chance of getting my hands dirty. Last year I boug...
Well, I’m finally starting a blog. I’ve thought of doing so many times before in a couple of different contexts and never got around to it (at least not well enough to prevent me from deleting what I had previously posted). The one thing I believe in doing is letting the reader know where I’m coming from. Most of what I write is going to come from a particular perspective, and if the reader doesn’t know that, how much help can it be? This is especially true in the ...
Hi all LJ’s, I finally signed up on LJ with an account. I have been reading people’s posts for several months now. I got the woodworking bug about 6-months ago and have been building a lot (toddler farmhouse bed, platform bed and trundle, workbench, coffee table, and a computer desk). I have a a neighbor that is a cabinet maker and has a shop in his basement/garage. He has been teaching me the basics. I will post some pictures of the toddler bed (my favorite item so far)....
Hi everyone, I’ve been viewing many of the projects here and am litterally awe-stricken at the quality of the workmanship here. I hope to make some contributions in the future of my own that will stand up! A little about me … Not having the tools nor the space in a rental or a condo, I had focused on other things such as cycleing and computer repair. Now, however, I have a modest home to which I am the proud owner of with my wife of 3 years and a baby on the way. What a time...
Well, I figured my first blog should be an introduction. I found Lumberjocks through the Wood Whisperer site. For the last couple of weeks I would check the site at work and home, starting to build what I can only now call an addiction. I finally signed-up because I felt that if I was going to look, I should at least be able to contribute. a single paragraph. I am a twice deployed Army Veteran, who was a tank platoon leader the first tour (in 03) and the division’s commo officer for ...
I just finished signing in ( I’ve been lurking for about a month) and I thought it would be a good idea to say hello. I’m John Abraham, and I’ve been a professional carpenter/ painter/ plasterer/ concrete mason since leaving the USAF in 1982. After seeing some of the projects on here, I find I have wasted these last 20+ years. Not really, but my chapeau is definately doffed to quite a few of you jocks! I currently run my own business remodelling homes or whatever other pr...
I’m going to have to get used to LJ not meaning “LiveJournal,” as it has for me these last 5 years. Interestingly, it’s the evaporation of all my friends’ comments on my other LJ that has me so excited to find this place. I think they’re past their limit on hearing about woodworking every minute they’re around me, or reading my journal. They’re all computer nerds :) How have I not found this place before?! Actually, I have. I’ve stumble...
