Website:

I started woodworking as a hobby in the early 2009.

When I bought my house 5 years ago I decided to take a woodworking class and learn. I have been fortunate the local adult school offers woodworking classes. I am most fortunate the classes are taught by one of the best teacher I have ever known. He has 30 years of experience as a machinist and as a woodworker; most of all he is a quick thinker. And he does insist on precision.
We make fantastic projects. I have not posted class projects here on LJ.

I still attend class from time to time. There is always something to learn and people there are great.

I do experiment a lot at home; 6 days a week belong to the family and work. One day on the weekend is mine for woodworking. For every project I finish there are at least half a dozen that ends up in the recycle bin.

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.

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
