Location: Pittsburgh, PA

I enjoy all kinds of joinery. Everything from boxes to furniture to puzzles. I am fascinated with the way things go together.

I am a self-taught woodworker who has only really learned from reading books and through experience. I never took a formal woodworking class except for shop class in Junior High. (I made an ice scraper.)

I believe if you set out to do something, you'd better do it right. There's no substitute for quality either. I want my works to last a couple of lifetimes.
So, whenever I go into my shop, I take my time and make sure everything is perfect. It may take me a very long time to complete a project, but that's okay! I enjoy not only the end product, but the process of buiding too.

Hey Dave, welcome to Lumberjocks! You will find it an unbelievable place for woodworking information.

And if one of those “F” stands for Furniture in your name, I hate to say it, but I think you’ll find this place a whole lot more helpful that the Zee’s board… ;)

Milo: Thanks for the welcome! I’m already excited about this website/forum. The FFMedic in my screen name is for Firefighter Paramedic. I’m honestly afraid of fixing any furniture that I didn’t make. But then, I’ve never had to repair any of my furniture pieces.

Welcome to LumberJocks. You’ll find this to be a great site for picking up pointers and exchanging ideas on all things wood and even some that aren’t.
