I am a retired US Army First Sergeant. I retired in NOV 2013 after almost 23 years of active duty. Took a little break from woodworking after building a man cave in my basement and my workshop's beckoning is getting louder by the day. Currently, I work as a supervisor at a local foundry. Great job, I really like it.

I am primarily a hand tool user. I simply don't have the room for a power tool shop nor do I have the want for the noise and mess. So I stick to the hand tools and the couple of smaller power tools I have.

I am always looking for information, opinions, and ideas. It is a great hobby filled with alot of methods.

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.

Thank You for serving your country!

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

thanks for kind words Mike. Attached are some pix of two camp chairs I donated to the 82nd Ass during our national meeting in Pittsburgh. Wood 2++” white pine which had been thrashing room floor of a barn (125 years old) reclaimed and donated to our class.
