I'm a 33 year old novice wood worker who spends his days in the office running a demolition division for a construction company. I live in Connecticut with my wonderful wife and our son. I have been inspired by my late grandfather with all of his "innovations", and an amazing heart to help people. I mostly deal with reclaimed lumber that the guys nicely pull off of our demo jobs and i get to create a new life for. The best lumber is free lumber.

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…

Wisty

I picked up this book today and knowing what you do for work I think you might find it particularly interesting/useful. I’ll probably review it/do a forum later on once I really get through it.

While on the subject I also got this one. Pretty useful reference guide.
