I first started woodworking with my Dad many years ago, but just took it up again a few years ago. My wife would say that it is just an excuse to collect more tools. I have a small shop in a 1 car garage. My dream is to one day have a shop building separate from my house. Most of my projects have been various cabinetry projects ranging from shop cabinets, blanket chest, writing desk, book shelves and an entertainment center. I am beginning to experiment with wood turning and carving.

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

I am quickly becoming aware of the addictiveness of this site. I have fussed at my wife regarding the amount of time she spends on Facebook. (I may be one of only 10 people that do not have a facebook page). Anyway, I suspect that this might be my “facebook.”

good guess doc. I use to use the ramps w/ a 2 ton wench. one guy would press the elect. button and i would guide it. dangerous to say the least. now i have a 5×12 angle iron trailer that has a pin in front. when pin is removed, the trailer tilts to the ground. I get a good start and run it up. the trailer levels out when i get to the balance point. put the pin back in and a couple of straps on the box and away i go. 47 states so far.

thanks for the kind words,
