I stumbled upon LumberJocks a week ago while looking for woodworking tips. Looks like a cool place to hang out. However, I was so busy finishing my Christmas gifts that I didn’t have a chance to introduce myself. I found myself amazed at how many folks submitted nice comments on my arrival to LJ.
I started woodworking in 1998, but it took six years to finish the first project I started. I did finish a couple of others between though. For the last six years I’ve been cranking out one project after another. You can see a few samples here on my flicker woodworking collection:
There’s more but I get so busy building that I forget to take pictures. My latest project was to build my first miter boxes. I planned to build three to start with, one each for my two daughters, and one for my mother. When I found out it wasn’t too hard with the miter sled I built from an FWW article, I decided to build one for my wife too. Then my daughter’s mother-in-law called and said she’d be coming to visit in a week I decided to build a 5th box. So between the first week in December and Christmas Eve I was in the shop virtually daily to build these: (only 4 here as ma-in-law got hers already…)
Anyway – I love woodworking and someday I hope to supplement my retirement income by selling my woodworking wares.
I look forward to learning from this community!
