I grew up as the son of a construction company owner and licensed general contractor, so I did a lot of rough carpentry and sheetrock work. I since grew up and now work in the technology field as a web developer. I bought my first home a couple of years ago and immediately demoed and remodeled the entire thing. I bought my first table saw during this project and by the time the master bathroom was ready to finish out, I decided to build a custom vanity. This gave me a taste for doing finish carpentry and woodworking, and now I'm hooked. I've done a few small projects including an easel and some butcher blocks made of hard maple and African mahogany. Due to size restrictions of my shop I do not have a power planer or jointer, so a few months ago I acquired my first hand plane. I am the proud owner of about 10 of them. They are fascinating and beautiful tools, and make me feel like a real woodworker when I use them. That's about the most of it. I'm currently working on a couple of ratcheting candlesticks and I know I'll find something after that.

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a little over a year 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

-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Have your say...
