Hello fellow woodworker! I am married to my wonderful wife of 44 years. In 1978 I made a plywood rolling cabinet for my then, photography hobby and I was hooked on woodworking. For Christmas 1979, I put a Craftsman radial arm saw on my wish list and Santa, aka my wife, brought it. (See I told you she is wonderful.) Nearly 30 years later, in May 2009, I bought my first table saw. In 2010 I retired and expanded my shop to its current 368 square feet. I consider it my little slice of heaven.

A native New Englander, I am a life-long Red Sox, Celtics and Patriots fan. The 21st century has been kind to the NE sports fans!

Over the years, I have made beds for my children, differing style coffee tables, gifts for friends and relatives, in short, everything from toys to fine furniture. I guess I am most proud of the 18th century corner chair I completed in January 2018. It took 270 hours to complete and involved every skill I have acquired in my woodworking journey.

I am delighted to have found this site. I have found it to be a wonderful venue for comaraderie, sharing of knowledge and advice/information.

Hey Lenny—

As a died-in-the-wool Bills fan, I’m going to overlook the small misjudgment regarding the Patriots… lol! In all seriousness, it’s really great to have you aboard! Enjoy!!

The quotes are really a signature line. Go to your Lumberjocks home page, and under your picture is “edit your profile.” Add the quote there.

Peace!!

Thank you Mack. Now I have to choose from one of the myriad of quotes for which I am word renowned! (Yeah, right.) I am enjoying the quotes I have seen, including your play on words.

P.S. I bet you long for the days of Jim Kelly and Marv Levy!

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

Lenny,

Welcome to this site. I came across your profile while looking for a friend as a new jock joining the site and thought this guy is like me…Big sports fan, who loves nothing more than talking woodworking, while watching the Yankees waste another 200+million. This is someone I can relate to!!!

I am relatively new to woodworking, but I have fallen hard for this “hobby” and I’m really looking forward to teaching my son and daughter as they get older. This site is filled with high character people who are extremely skilled, but also extremely generous in sharing their knowledge with others. Enjoy your stay and I’m looking forward to seeing more of your work. Welcome to the place where everyone shares your passion.

Mike

Hi Lenny,

Thank you for communicating with me. I’m happy reading your message.

Yes Lenny, I viewed alot projects posted here. I comment, ask questions when in doubt and make suggestion if need to. That’s how I learn woodworking. I read a few ww magazines & books, signed-up a number of ww forum like FWN KNOTs, DIY Banter, Lumberjocks ..etc etc… But I spend most my free time visiting LJs. Lumberjocks is different in many ways. Not only it is user friendly, the all 6,000+ members are very kind, friendly and helpful.

Looking forward to viewing more projects from you.

Take care and work safe.
