A couple years ago I finally got the sawmill I had dreamed of for so long. Then I had all sorts of great lumber so I had to get some tools to work it with. Now I build a while, and cut a while, and don't seem to get anything done other than that.

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

Karson, Thanks, it is very functional, but of course I’m always seeing the ways it could be set up better. Slowly but surely I am getting those little ideas accomplished, so maybe one of these days it will be perfect?!! haha The unique woods are what I would eventually like to specialize in, but for now I cut what pays the bills and keep my eyes open for those that are Special.
