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.

Wow, I just signed up last night! Thank you all for welcoming me so quickly. I hope to contribute a dirty necked, desert scrapwood carver’s perspective. Everyone has such beautiful pieces on here I am humbled to be among you. I feel slighlty at a disadvantage since most of my tools come from yardsales and Harbor Freight, but as you all know, art comes from nothing, and leads to perfection.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day, and THANK YOU to all who have served their country.

Covert Ops, I like that I too, but I am afraid that I will be chased down by a patrolman and when I try to explain, the wood reclaimed explanation would sound flimsy.

As for a website for reclaimed materials, I guess it depends on your local community and possibly craigslist. I live in Boise Idaho and I have a friend who has a small sawmill, and occasionally he gets a tree that the city has to move due to wind damage, disease, building expansion, ect. I buy certain species from him at a discount price (sometimes I have to sticker and dry it myself since it is sometimes green). I make projects for myself, but I also donate chests and boxes to local fundraisers and charity events to be auctioned off. I also include a Leter of Authenticity explaining where the lumber in the chest came from and what the species is and any interesting notes on its assembly. I also say in my letter that the tree was saved from the landfill, mulcher, ect and “It looks much better drying in my workshop than in the landfill.” People seem to like this recycling angle, and they tend to bid more since it is truely a one-of-a-kind item and it involves recycled/reclaimed items.

Hopefully you are able to find what you are looking for and I look forward in seeing more of your completed projects on lumberjocks.

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 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
