Hi, My family owns and operates a hardwood sawmill in Northeast PA, Porosky Lumber Co. I've been selling Curly Maple and Figured Cherry on ebay for years now. In producing stock for woodworkers across the country, I've accumulated several pieces of key equipment essential to woodworking and with a endless supply of lumber it has become my favorite pass time.
Along with my wife, Brandy, I have been finishing off different parts of our house for the last five years and still have a ways to go (does it ever end?). I have some great ideas about what I would like to do, and with the right help and tools hopefully I'll be able to achieve some of them.
Growing up my Grandfather taught me some of the joys of woodworking, which I did not quite get until lately. The solitude for one, the sense of accomplishment, the learning, thinking and understanding that comes with each success and failure. I look forward to being part of the woodworking community for many years to come.
