I am a software engineer doing amateur woodworking as a hobby in my spare time. My wife and I have worked out a budget where we each get $20 a month for clothing and $20 a month for "Fun Money" (spend on whatever you want without needing to consult spouse). I have no need for any more clothing right now, so I get $40 for "Fun Money". Usually all of that goes toward something woodworking related.

I have been absorbing as much woodworking knowledge as I can from any source that I can find. As I have now acquired enough tools to do something useful, we'll see if I can put what I've learned to use!

Welcome to Lumber Jocks! This is a great place to get – or give – advice about woodworking on the forums and the project posts are a wonderful source of new ideas. I look forward to seeing your projects and posts.

To get the most feedback on your projects, it’s best to only post 1 or 2 at a time. This way you will get feedback over several days and from a wide variety of members.

Please enjoy your membership.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Wisty
