I hope to post some of my work soon since I just joined. I do more primitive folk art work and am the queen of the Scroll saw. I hope to learn how to do more with miters and shelves etc. Also looking to hear what some of the other Lumber-jills are doing and are there any woman woodworkers in Wisconsin.

I am a lumber-jill also, I am in Minnesota (but I work in Wisconsin so I am close). I do a lot of scroll saw work and also make jewelry.
Can’t wait to see your projects! Welcome to Lumberjocks

Welcome aboard, LumberJill. Nice to see one of the “weaker sex” here.

Did you know that the weaker sex is really the stronger sex because of the weakness of the stronger sex for the weaker sex? :)
