I began woodworking around the end of 2009. I had no experience when I began my new-found passion and all my lessons on the subject derived from magazines, books and podcasts. As I progressed into this new technical skill my path led me towards the power tool route. That stuck with me for about the first two years until I began to feel like the machines were doing more work than I was. I wanted to truly build by hand without power tools.

Being married with four kids does not leave time to attend formal woodworking classes. After some research I came across Shannon Rogers’ Hand Tool School. This fulfilled what I was looking for. I began buying and learning to build with hand tools with the intention of making the switch only after learning the hand tool that would replace it’s powered counterpart. It didn’t happen that way.

Right before our move from FL to NC, I made the drastic decision to sell all my power tools. The main rational for the sudden decision was if I intended on selling it later down the road, I might as well get I done before the move to save on space and work. I only had a hand full of hand planes and saws from eBay but was not entirely prepared to sell everything. I had to be confident that since I had mostly taught myself the basics of power tool woodworking, I could do the same with hand tools.

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.

Thank you for serving your country.

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

Jocks UP!
OhRahh Devil, Just wanted to let you know that their’s jocks here. GySgt Adams, Camp Lejeune NC. I guess that we are both in the process of upgrading. There’s plenty of housing in that area, enough room for you to have your own shop. So when you get here just give me a shout out.
