Hello,

Not sure if this is the appropriate place to do this; please advise if not. I’m Zach Dillinger. I’m a hand-tool woodworker from Charlotte, MI. I usually post over on Sawmill Creek but someone mentioned this site to me so I thought I’d check it out. My favorite thing, aside from using my collection of wooden and iron planes, is to find old tools. I post my latest finds on my blog, www.eatoncountywoodworker.blogspot.com

In the coming days, I will be uploading some pictures of furniture projects I’ve completed recently. I’ve never taken step by step photos, but I have finished shots of many projects from my home and the homes of my clients and friends. From this point on, I will take step by step photos in hope that someone, somewhere can learn something from me, as I’ve learned so much from others.

Thanks,

Zach

Zach, welcome aboard again. Step wise construction posts are always well received here so please feel free to post to your heart’s content. It is a challenge to do this since it means a lot of starting and stopping in the construction process.

Being a traditional woodworker is somewhat of a rarity. Most of us tend to be power tool users. I know that I have neglected development of my hand skills and I enjoy seeing projects built using hand tools. It takes a lot of repetition, talent, perseverance and plenty of patience to be able to devote oneself to traditional methods of furniture construction. I am looking forward to seeing some of your posts.

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 Zach, from a neighbor of yours, from the big town of Laingsburg. You joined just in time, we are having a Lumberjock Picnic and Lalapalooza on the 25th at Hawk Island Park in Lansing, It sure would be great if you can make it and meet some fellow jocks. I lied about the palooza part but we are going out to Bath to visit a sawyer called Raven Farm. The party starts at 1pm. The park is on Cavanaugh just off South Pennsylvania, south of the Meijer Store. There is also a Guild I just learned about in Dewitt. You may already be aware of it knowing Johnsons Workbench. Maybe bring some of your planes to show, or projects. Looking forward to meeting you. Mike.
