I have the best job ever. I pastor a church in Northwestern PA. As much as I love all I do, I realized I needed a little break to keep from going nuts. Hence, woodworking.

I pretty much use hand tools as often as I can, but I'm not opposed to using power tools from time to time. I'm not out to sell anything; that would ruin the purpose behind this journey.

I had the privilege of building my wood shop in the back corner of my barn with my dad. He is one of the greatest carpenters I've ever known. He's even a better dad.

So my wood shop serves many purposes. Besides doing woodworking, I also use it as a place to study and read my Bible (used a big plane shaving as a book mark one week; that got some attention), pray, connect with my kids, and counsel those from my church and community.

I'm thankful for an understanding and supportive wife.

But most of all, I'm thankful for a God who loves me and give me the ability to use my hands to discover what's .002" below the surface of the wood that He grew.

Welcome. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Work safe in the shop and don’t forget to use pushsticks.

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…
