Good day!! This is my first post on Lumberjacks and it is a project that I completed almost 2 years ago. I have been working as a custom woodworker professionally for a year and as a serious hobby for over 15 years. I took the plunge September 2015 and quit my day job and began woodworking as a career profession. It’s true what they say, “behind every woodworker, is a wife with a good job.” I have been a long time Lumberjocks fan and now that I have been in business for myself for a complete year now, I decided to join. I wanted to make sure that I was successful enough for a year before I joined. I’m so thankful to be able to work from home and for myself!! I’ll continue to post my projects from the past several years so you’ll be getting A LOT of projects to review. After that I’ll continue to post projects as I complete them!! Cheers!!!!!!
