I've been working the wood for about fifteen years now. All self taught and sometimes it really shows. I'm getting better with every project I complete. I do mostly custom work for my family and kids and also some custom stuff for retail customers. I would really like to win the lottery and do this stuff full time for fun. I love wood!

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months 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…

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
