Just a quick note to say thank you for the hospitality I’ve received from the members of this site in welcoming me as a new addition. I went through some really bad things and I’m finally ready to get back to wood. I have no projects to show because I’m still waiting on the rest of my tools. I will probably have allot of questions for the community though because I’ve been out of the game for a long time and things have changed.

James, you are “home”
We are all a bunch of happy go lucky mishaps, none of us are perfect, not all of us any any good at WW either, but we get along well together and support each other and leave egos at the door.
You are so welcome, hope you find all your WW needs satisfied here, and have some fun along the way.

Think of this place as a buddy’s shop that is the local wood lover’s hangout. Folks drop in to grab a coffee and show the gang what they are working on or ask a question or two about something they are having trouble with. Some of the guys are great at the craft and enjoy passing along the knowledge they have accumulated over the years. Others are just as good but aren’t very good at sharing. It’s not that they’re keeping secrets, it’s just they don’t have the knack to get their point across. Still others are just getting started and need help with even the simplest of projects. No matter what your skill level, you’re welcome, because you’re part of the neighborhood, the wood working community called LumberJocks.

Now pull up a stool, grab yourself a coffee, and join in the chin wagging.

Welcome James, were not all a mentally stable bunch, but we have fun and the advice I have obtained from the fellow wood nuts is priceless. When ever I can help I will, I will only advise on what I know & what I have done personally, so i will never steer anybody the wrong way.

Lumberjocks to me is similar to years ago when I hung out at the hardware store with a bunch of woodworking buddies just shooting the breeze for several hours than going home and we all tried to have a new project we could talk about the next time, ask advice, show off, be over critical of our own work, they only differencve Is I am typing not talking.

Great to have you with us, welcome aboard, I look forward to seeing more from you.
