I started woodworking when I was 6. My grandfather had an elablorate shop since he retired in the 70's. When my parents were both working he watched me and I learned a wealth of knowledge from him. I made my first carving when I was 6 on my own workbench that was handcrafted for a youngster of my size that even had a wood vise. Over the years I picked things up along the way and continue to learn. I graduated from WVU with a undergrad in Wood Science and Technology which focused on the chemical and mechanical properties of wood.

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

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…
