Why did YOU join Lumber Jocks and how did you discover it?

Hello everyone. If this has been covered before, my apologies but hey, maybe it is time for a refresher on the subject or a chance for new members to respond. I recently was thinking of all the diverse skill and knowledge along with all the participation on this site. I got to thinking about why all us woodworkers have joined and stayed. Then I got to thinking it would be interesting to hear how everyone found out about Lumber Jocks in the first place. I actually stumbled on to LJs a co...

Interviewing My Woodworking Heroes #1: Nairi Safaryan

11-23-2012 09:46 PM by WoodGoddess | 4 comments »

Nairi Safaryan was born in 1958 in the town of Shushi located in the Karabagh region of Armenia. Nairi’s childhood is filled with memories of carving wooden toys, drawing and creating chalk sculptures. In 1996, Safaryan was invited to participate in two exhibitions at the Yerevan’s Folk Art Museum and honored with the title of Folk Master. This honor was bestowed on him not only because he had reached the level of Master Woodcarver, but because Safaryan’s work has a special charm that dis...

Making Money at My Passion

03-28-2011 11:31 AM by amateur | 10 comments »

Most amateurs (at anything) would love to be able to turn their passion into an occupation. Imagine making your living by getting lost in your hobby! I have never met a dedicated fisherman who hadn’t wondered how they could get a salary out of fishing. Or the would-be chef who had not thought, “maybe there is a way to expand this into a business.How many hours have I found myself daydreaming of making beautiful rocking chairs or dining tables or woodturnings or blanket chests as f...

This week, I had the privilege of speaking with Katie Surratt, the Marketting and Public Relations Associate at Microplane. _ Microplane is perhaps best known for their rasps, but there is so much more to this company. The HistoryThe company first began its journey making parts for dot-matrix printers. As the need for these parts began to disappear the company knew that they had to start building something else. The parts, which they had been making for the printers, were extr...

random #24: list of favorite woodworkers

08-12-2009 08:20 AM by Gary Fixler | 1 comment »

While searching up something else on the Google last night, I stumbled upon an exactly 900 day old post on our very own LJs site in which user ToolCrib asked the question Who are YOUR top five most influential woodworkers?. ToolCrib (Garrett) then went on to compile that list to his own site here. I thought I’d repost that effort on the 900th day as a little look back at who everyone thought was inspirational a few years ago, but then I fell asleep early, so here it is, 901 days later :)
