I'm a PhD student who does a little woodworking when I have some spare time, mostly during the summer moths. My dad was a cabinetmaker and I learned a lot from him, but have been trying to figure it out on my own these past few months. Our one-car garage has become my small shop. I have both power tools and hand tools and like to find some sort of balance between the two. I love working working with hand tools, especially vintage tools, because they possess a special charm. I've been building little things around the house and furniture, much in the Arts & Crafts tradition. I've found woodworking to offer a nice change from academic life because it allows me to work with my hands and produce useful and tangible items.

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
