When in Eastern Washington and you get to a point where it is about an hour to civilization, whether you go north, northeast, east, southeast, southwest, or west, you're probably near my front door step.

My inclination to be a bit of a tool snob is kept in check by a visit to my farming friends, who own tools the price of which (e.g., a combine) would buy all the tools in my shop several times over.

I started sawdust making around 74. People started buying some of the things I made and my hobby, eventually, became a business. In time, I gave up my regular job (I told people the pay and benefits were too good and the job was too secure, so I had to leave) and went into woodworking and carpentry full time.

I could be I moved into woodwork and such full time as an excuse to buy toys, uh, tools and equipment. Regardless, having a well equipped shop allows me to tackle most anything I please. However, I confess to making it a point to own very few concrete or roof working tools.

In the years since I've dabbled in woodwork, I've produced picture frames, art pedestals, kitchen and other cabinets, bookshelves, racks and the usual assortment of things people like us do.

Some of my projects incorporate glass etch, others granite. Obviously, coat racks might use iron hooks and nearly everything I make relies on some sort of fastener.

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…

Wisty

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
