Well, I figured my first blog should be an introduction. I found Lumberjocks through the Wood Whisperer site. For the last couple of weeks I would check the site at work and home, starting to build what I can only now call an addiction. I finally signed-up because I felt that if I was going to look, I should at least be able to contribute. a single paragraph.

I am a twice deployed Army Veteran, who was a tank platoon leader the first tour (in 03) and the division’s commo officer for the night shift in 06, and yes I got the nickname Duke because I look like the character. While in the army I bought my first house and got bit by the DIY bug. After some home upgrades I started to wonder what else I could do with these tools. Needless to say I moved on to woodworking. I’ve made some cutting boards (a la Spagnuolo), a couple of quick bandsaw boxes and a lot of pens. At the moment, I am in the process of wiring my garage off a sub-panel because I am sick and tired of tripping over extension cords for my tools. Look for pics of my shop (garage) soon, as I continue to delve into woodworking.

I guess I can contribute two paragraphs…or does this count as three?

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
