I am just starting in woodworking and am learning a lot from all of the information on the web. I operate a nuclear power plant by trade. I have a wonderful wife and three great sons. I am a veteran of the US Navy in which I served for 14 years on several submarines.

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

Thank you all for such a kind welcome to LumberJocks. I am just starting out in woodworking. I am trying to find my way around the website still and am not very familiar with how to use it yet. So please don’t get offended if you added me to your buddy list and I haven’t added you to mine. Frankly, I don’t have any idea yet how that is done. Currently I am working on a woodworking bench. I got the plan off of Fine Woodworking beginner’s video. So far so good. When I figure out how to post it I will take a picture of it. I am really looking forward to reading the blogs and picking the minds of all of the experienced people on the site. Thanks again.
