I'm a retired school teacher. Also retired from my full time/part time photography business. I love to pull a board out of the pile and a day or two later announce, "Can you believe that was a board two days ago!"
I like wood. I especially like the feel of a finished piece. Building something useful out of wood makes me feel good. I especially like to give my completed works to friends and family. I find it special when I am presented with something that someone spent hours creating. I like to give others that same feeling.
I have been treated very well by long-time woodworkers that are happy to share their time and talents with me. I appreciate the willingness of others to bring a newbie into the fold. I have typed enough... now off to the shop!
ps... do you ever get the urge to turn on power tools late at night, concerned it might disturb neighbors? Then do it anyway?

Rested and refreshed the wife and I headed back to the Art and Antique sale with renewed vigor. One day of slow (actually nonexistent) sales wouldn’t deter us from putting a fine box in the hands of every American. When we pulled our tru...
I had some interest from fellow Lumberjocks to let them know how the sales were at the show this weekend. Here’s a lengthy recap. You may want to get some snacks now or visit the restroom before proceeding. Day one of art show box sales...
I am a member of several on-line forums. I am retired, with a computer within easy walking distance to my refrigerator, I visit them all on a daily basis. Each forum has its benefits. Since a friend (aka Boxguy) led me to LumberJocks, it ...
