Location: Upstate NY

Got my first 20oz framing hammer, Harold, when I was 8 years old. Snapped the handle eighteen years later, still feels off.

I work in theatre and thus do a lot of "non-traditional" wood working. Look at my first post for an example. Before I started working in theatre I did numerous wood butchery projects with my father (a carpenter).

Aside from being a "lumber jock" I am enjoy boardgames quite a lot. My wife and I own over 120 board and card games.

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
