Hello everybody! this is my first blog and i don’t really know what a blog is so i am just experimenting…..i am going to babble on about myself for a little bit….. LET THE BABBLING BEGIN (MUHAHAHAHA!).... My name is melissa, i am 17 years old and have been a woodworker for almost 10 months now. My specialties are Intarsia, Scroll Saw work, and Finish/Detail work. I especally enjoy drawing my own Intarsia, but have just the other day perfected turning my paper doodles into beautiful wooden carvings. I am learning marquetry, and hope to learn power carving if my instructor would ever let me use the dremel ;) . I love animals, and cooking as well as the afore mentiond variations of the woodworking art. ....... END OF BABBLING!!!! thanks for reading!


-- ahhh, Woodworking...... What more is there to say?

Bienvenue, velcomen, welcome, Woodpecker! Way cool that you like the refined art of intarsia, et al. I haven’t gotten up the nerve for that stuff, veneering or marquetry yet. Someday though…

In the meantime, enjoy Lumberjocks.
