Recieved my love for woodworking from my grandfather, I would visit him in the summer for two weeks and help him build a project that my mother would ask him to make for her. Got away from it for a while with school and the military and work. Now have wife and two boys and was handed down all the tools my grandfather had because I was the only grandson that showed an interest in woodworking. Now I have claimed 2/3rds of the basement of the new house for woodworking, put up a wall to keep dust to a minimum in the rest of the house and am building it up slowly with tools and honey-do projects. More projects than tools.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.
God Bless
