I've been hacking at wood for some 25 years. I originally started repairing antiques when my wife and I first married....we couldn't afford new furniture and broken antiques or stuff that needed re-finishing were right in our price range! I have some larger tools crammed in a small shop and built a few small pieces at one time, including a carousel style rocking horse for my daughter. I gradually spent less time in the shop as we raised our daughter and work and other things intefered. But I became interested in wood carving about 2 years ago and have cleaned up and refurbished all my tools. I like carving and smaller projects because they use less wood and I can complete them quicker...keeps me from getting too discouraged. I hope I can contribute something of value to this forum, but I'll probably lurk for a while..

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.

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 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
