I retired from teaching a few years ago, and resumed my love for woodworking, which I previously did in my summers off. I always enjoyed whittling and carving, something I watched my Grandfather do. Now after discovering scroll sawing and all it can do, I have joined the ranks of serious crafters, doing shows and markets, as well as displaying my stuff online.Two years ago, my wife and I moved to a condo with a a community workshop , outfitted mostly with some well-used Swiss made equipment that my neighbour, a carpenter by trade brought with him to Canada. I have contributed my scroll saw (no one else uses it but me) , a belt sander and a thickness planer. Its great to learn from experienced and creative people like my neighbour and from people like yourselves, and I really look forward to that. I love working with woods like black walnut, butternut, mahogany, oak, maple and mix in some of the exotic woods when can get some, like bubinga, purple heart etc. I tend to try many different types of projects, which has its advantages and disadvantages, but its all great fun. Looking forward to being part of this community

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a little over a year ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Wisty

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
