Hello All!

A six + year woodworker working from a garage shop and trying unsuccessfully to convince my S.O. that a house with a workshop would be cool.

I like building small tables but think turning bowls would be really awesome. I hope to get a lathe next year if the economy doesn't evaporate my job.

I have a dream that when I retire in 10 to 12 years that I can supplement my income by building and selling artful tables, boxes, and turned objects.

I stumbled on to LumberJocks while looking for tips. Seems like a cool place to hang out!

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
