Hi All. I hope this is the place to post something like this?

I’m brand new to this site and just wanted to say hello to everybody and say a little bit about myself.

I have a new friend on a woodcarving forum and he mentioned this site to me. I don’t know how I never found this wonderful site before. It looks like there are some very interesting topics and information here.

I’ve worked with wood a little bit. I’ve made a few projects but nothing too fancy. I have also been a woodcarving for a couple years. I took up woodcarving as something for my Grandson and I to do together. Nothing too fancy in the woodcarving department either but it’s fun for both of us. I live in SW Michigan.

I hope to contribute something at some time. Best regards to all. Paul

Welcome to LJ Paul. If you like making things out of wood, or looking at things made from wood you found the right place. The roll the dice button on the homepage is the best button on the site. Too much to ever see.
