Hi everyone,

I have been following this forum for some time now and decided to join. I work primarily with hand tools (thanks to Paul Sellers influence). I’m currently working on my bench which should be done in the next few weeks. This seems like a great place and I’m looking forward to getting to know some of you.

Hi Matt,

I haven’t got to know anyone yet but this site has a lot to offer. Watching Paul Sellers got me started too but he makes it look so easy.

Welcome Matt (no pun intended). I understand how Paul Sellers has an influence on you, he also is an influence on me. There’s quite a number of hand tool woodworkers on this forum so you’ll fit right in.

Welcome on. You’ll find plenty of Paul Sellers fans here, myself included. Just curious, are you building the bench that he has the video series of?

Hi Matt. WELCOME TO LUMBERJOCKS. This has got to be the best woodworking site on the net with the best people too!
I too live in Grand Rapids, Mi. We have a woodworking guild here in town and a turners guild too. Are you a member of either one of them? I have a lot of the guild members on here now because their websites were not working so good and this one is great!!

We’ll have to meet for coffee sometime?
If you are going to the 28th Street Metro Cruise, I will have my gold ‘72 Monte Carlo in Rogers Plaza parking lot on Sat. morning..

Stop buy and say hi if you come!!
