Location: Quinte West, Ontario Canada

My name is Jim Reeves, l was born in Trenton, Ontario, Canada May/07/1959.
I am the father of 4 children 3 boys ages youngest to oldest 29, 34, 38 and my daughter my little angle she is 27. ( My little girl is pregnant with her first child, our first grandchild due Jan/26/2017 l am so excited. )

My wife and l have been married 38 years married on July/14/1979.
I learned the drywall trade from my father in law in 1978, but due to many health problems and a bad car accident in 1989 l am limited to a few small jobs a year.
Became interested in woodworking in about 2000 when l was told by my doctor l needed a hobby to combat my serious depression.

So l started buying what has now become hundreds of woodworking books, magazines as well as allot of power and hand tools etc.
I started selling some projects about 3-4 years ago shelves, book cases my goal is to make assorted products. To make a little home business and l hope to make income l am allowed to make on my disability pension, so can help my wife meet bills etc.
I look forward to chatting and learning here as well thanks to all
for the welcome messages

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…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

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.

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
