I'm fairly new to woodworking but I've enjoyed it all so far.

I've learned a lot from local people and lots more from reading the blogs and other LJ entries that interest me.

I live in a crappy town with lots of crappy people that never want to help someone with a general interest in what they do, so it has been hard to find anyone that shares a similar interest besides me and my dad.

We are also very busy people with jobs and personal lives and lack a shed.
We are lucky to make anything.

I've used computers all my life and in case you were wondering, I use Linux, mostly Ubuntu and Puppy for various reasons. I work at a big blue box home improvement store, coincidentally I sell tools, which is probably the best job to have in the store. I got interested in woodworking about March of 06 and have made a few things, started out in plywood to get my feet wet and got into some pine. Don't wanna waste good wood just yet :) but I plan on getting into some better quality woods here soon.

Thanks, someone told me about this site on a myspace group. I’m still very new to woodworking. I’ve only built a workbench, a small assembly table, and child size Adirondack chair. The work bench is great, the rest isn’t anything to brag about.

I think I’ll end up liking this place!

Boon, good to see you here, this is a great site. About your shed you might think about pressure treated 4X4 for the ground contact section and that should keep all other wood dry and rot free.

I NEED ADVICE ASAP !!!
I HAVE WAITED UNTIL LITERALLY THE LAST MINUTE TO ADDRESS THIS QUESTION.I AM REFRAMING MY FRONT PORCH FLOOR WITH TREATED LUMBER AND WAS CONCERNED OF WARPAGE OR SHRINKING WHEN THE WEATHER GETS WARM AND MY T&G FLOORING WILL BE BUCKLING.
SHOULD I JUST GO AHEAD AND USE REGULAR 2X” LUMBER AND OIL PRIME FOR LONGGEVITY ??? AFTER ALL,THE HOUSE IS 100 YEARS OLD AND THE EXSISTING STRINGERS ARE ROT FREE,I JUST WANT TO INSTALL LARGER ONES
..... THE STRINGERS WILL NOT BE EXPOSED TO WEATHER OR GROUNG CONTACT.THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT CAN RESPOND.MERRY CHRISTMAS.TOM

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
