I am 38 years old and have been woodworking as a hobby since college. I have wife, two kids, dog, cat and a bunny. I currently make pens and cutting boards which I sell to support my habit. I am getting more and more into wood turning and have joined a wood carving group. I am looking forward to meeting you guys. Oh, and I like long walks on the beach.

-- A famous poet once said: “There is a name hidden in the shadow of my soul, the name is wood. Sweet, ever beautiful, earth grown wood. It warms my heart and brings a tear to my eye.”

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
