My love of woodworking goes back to high school. Have always had one or more projects going even when I was working full time for local utility company.
I also save every piece of wood that I think I will be able to salvage.
After I retired I started remodeling kitchens, bathrooms, etc. . As of the past two years stepped back from that and only do smaller projects. My new business is call Old With New.
I try and use recycled materials for all my projects.

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 just about 2 years 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…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…
