Well lets see I am 16 and getting into woodworking as a profession. I dont want to specialize in one area of woodworking, I want to do it all. I am saving money to build my dad a new metal machining shop and then take over his old one and turn it into a nice 24'by42' woodshop. That way I will have a little more room. I would much rather be woodworking all day than going to school but once Iget my diploma I plan on opening a full scale furniture shop and plan on making furniture and doing some custom woodwork. To make a little money at a time right now i make scroll saw ornaments and try to find craft shows to sell them at. So i have a rough plan of what I want to do in life and plan on striving to complete that goal.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself almost a year 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…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

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
