Location: Northern Illinois

I was into woodworking in high school more than 35 years ago, but gave it up because of time, space and money constraints. Now that I'm nearing retirement, I needed a hobby. So I started woodworking again around January 2008. Having a great time so far.

Welcome Ron. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. I did some surveying back in the ‘50’s. What a change for then to now. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Have fun and work safe.

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.

God Bless
