Hello everyone. I am new here. Have followed the forum for a while and think that it is time to jump in. I am retired and living in north eastern Ontario Canada. I have done woodworking most of my life as a hobbie and since I have retired I am busy ( hardley have time to take a afternoon nap) making outdoor and indoor furniture for the cottagers here.

Looking forward to seeing your new projects and talking to all and adding my 2 cents worth when I can.

Hi Larry
Spring is here and I’m starting to think about the garden. How about showing us some of your outdoor furniture.

Hi Larry,

Welcome again. Love of wood and the beauty that is hidden within it is a common thread among the members of this group. You should fit in very nicely. Glad to have you aboard.

Larry, Welcome. You have probably already found out the biggest problem with this site: it is addicting. I look forward to seeing and hearing from you.

Welcome Larry! 32 years in the Hydro construction field. That sounds interesting. And now retired. You probably are thinking ‘when did I have time to work’. A great group of people here willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Have fun and work safe.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks, Larry. This is almost better than a nap. I have to get up at 5 AM to find time for all this . A great place to learn and teach. Teach us and show us your work.
