Intro

02-25-2010 12:23 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 16 comments »

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...

Hello Everyone!

09-01-2008 02:16 AM by trice | 12 comments »

Hey guys and gals. I just stumbled across lumberjocks and love it. I have done alittle bit of woodworking/carpentry in my day, but nothing crazy. I am definately a rank amateur. I have recently been getting the itch to actually learn to work with wood properly. Until now I have always just cobbled stuff together when needed, sometimes more successfuly than others. I have always been the type to do things for myself, but I have found that as I get older, the need/want to be self sufficient in ...

Blog Introduction

11-14-2016 04:43 PM by Big Foot Bows | 1 comment »

My name is Kirk Lavender. I live in a little hamlet called “Mulino” that is located about 30 miles south of Portland Oregon. I’ve lived here for 26 years and built my own wood shop in the summer of 96’ on our little 2 acre ranch. The original farm house was built in 1886 and was on the old stage coach line from Oregon city south to Molalla. Its a very peaceful setting out here surrounded by larger 20-40 acre farms that are mostly used for pasture and hay fields. i a...

Introduction and TS woes

02-10-2013 04:41 PM by dschlic1 | 0 comments »

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 ...

I Forgot - Let me introduce myself....

12-28-2008 06:56 AM by johngoes | 8 comments »

Hello! I stumbled upon LumberJocks a week ago while looking for woodworking tips. Looks like a cool place to hang out. However, I was so busy finishing my Christmas gifts that I didn’t have a chance to introduce myself. I found myself amazed at how many folks submitted nice comments on my arrival to LJ. I started woodworking in 1998, but it took six years to finish the first project I started. I did finish a couple of others between though. For the last six years I’ve been c...

Hello to y'all

10-17-2009 05:21 PM by nailbanger2 | 19 comments »

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...

The Workbench #1: Arriving upon the scene

07-29-2013 02:04 PM by debianlinux | 0 comments »

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...

Hello Lumberjocks

03-31-2017 05:12 PM by ofthemound | 6 comments »

Hello Lumberjocks my name is Shane and I live in Upstate NY. I was born and raised in the North Country, but have moved around a bit. Finally back home and looking to build my woodworking experience through different means from cabinetmaking, trim carpentry and framing. A wise man told me that regardless of what my goals were for carpentry it isn’t useless gaining experience in different forms. That the culmination of my experience will make me a knowledgable and well-rounded tradesman....

Yo Joe! #1: Introduction

01-26-2010 05:47 AM by Dukegijoe | 13 comments »

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 ...
