I have always had an interest in most types of woodwork. Many years ago I spent a few years of my youth in the UK, and was lucky enough to make friends with a highly skilled cabinetmaker come high class shopfitter. Whenever I could I would help him out on many weekend projects and he taught me to appreciate working with good tools and good timber. As craftsmen go, he was the genuine article.As a teacher, he was incredible......That was 50 years ago.
In the last few years I have collected a few more tools, a few bits of machinery and now, in semi retirement I am happy to just fiddle a little in the shed. I do like using the beautiful wood we have here in Australia.......

Welcome to Lumber Jocks! This is a great place to get – or give – advice about woodworking on the forums and the project posts are a wonderful source of new ideas. I look forward to seeing your projects and posts.

To get the most feedback on your projects, it’s best to only post 1 or 2 at a time. This way you will get feedback over several days and from a wide variety of members.

Please enjoy your membership.

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months 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…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Wisty

Great job. I was about to ask a very detailed question about the inlay, but went to your blog first and found my answer. Thanks for putting the details there. It sure is helpful when folks post the journey as well as the final product. That way, I can run into the shop and ruin a bunch of wood trying to duplicate it!

Good work!
