Started "piddling" with woodworking in mid 80's. In '89 we bought "Our Old House" which was build in 1895. We worked hard on renovating it for about 3-5 years and then kids came along. Since then, most of my "free" time has revolved around them doing scouts, marching band boosters, camping/boating and other family activities. Last year, my daughter (17 yr old at the time) got interested in making an entertainment center for the LCD TV she had bought so we cleaned the shop up some and converted a wardrobe carcass I had started probably 15 yrs ago. Now, she is wanting to make coffee table/end tables for an apartment she'll be in next year at college. My 17 yr old son is also wanting to make a desk for his room. So, I've gone full circle back into woodworking. Through the years I have done some small projects and been able to renovate a little more on the house.

My nickname, "Hotbyte", is the name of our boat, a 2002 Glastron GX205 that we bought new. It is red and the kids said name had to be hot, fire or something similar. I work in information technology so we came up with Hot Byte and use that for all of my forum nicknames. We also are avid campers/RV'ers. Over the years we've progressed from tents, popup camper, fifth wheel and now a 31' Class C motorhome.

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

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
