Hi yall! I sure am glad to finally find a great website that is just for us woodies. I am what you would call a begginer in the woodworking world. I hail from good ol’ Memphis Tennessee, you know Elvis and the home of the best bar-b-que in the world. I say I am a begginer but I’ve been building stuff ever since I could hold up a hammer. I just know have the funds to really get serious. I haven’t done anything quite as nice as you folks, but I’m learning. Oh if you couldn’t tell, I’m a huge fan of Master Carpenter Norm Abrams. Oh yeah, the Lumberjock jokes are hilarious!

Well good to have you along for the ride. This is a swinging place. Even with a hammer.

Are you Norms country cousin? Welcome to the group!... believe it or not, there are lots of beginners here. We’re fun, encouraging, and yes… addictive!

I get grief al the time for being a fan of a yankee, I just say woodworking is as woodworking does.

O.k. MountainDrew, you’re a funny man. I opened this post and saw Norm’s face and my heart stopped for just a second.

Wouldn’t that be great if the real Norm signed up as a Lumberjock?
