Location: Springfield, Illinois

I have done quite a bit of construction, building residential homes and such, but always enjoyed the finish trimming the most. I just recently bought a little piece of property with a nice farm house and a couple of roomy shops already on it. So, finally I have the room to start getting some tools and practicing at a great hobby. I have some hand me down tools from my grandfather and a couple of affordable ones I bought my self. I will start from here and see where it takes me.

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
