Location: Brockton, MA

I'm a computer systems administrator but I started woodworking at a young age helping dad make a maple plate rack when I was very young. It was a reproduction whale tail shelf and I got to hand sand the pieces before they were joined together.

Over the years since that shelf I have collected a variety of tools of varying qualities and I am now that my kids are a little older I find I am finally able to spend some time to get to know them a little better.

I'm glad to have found a community of woodworkers. There's not much in southeast Massachusetts that I have found so online is the next best thing. See you around the workshop!

Welcome. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Work safe in the shop and don’t forget to use pushsticks.

Wow, I never expected a welcoming committee! Thanks for such a warm welcome everyone! I’ve been lurking here for a couple weeks as I discovered the site while researching a new dream project. Registrations finally re-opened and I was able to join.

I’m currently in the middle of cleaning up my basement workshop and making some new budget cabinets/benches to finally organize everything. I’m using the Shop Notes One Wall Workshop (issue #92) as the inspiration but with shop-built industrial grade particle board cabinets instead of the retail cabinets they used.

Once I finish the cabinets and get the shop cleaned up, I have a long list of new projects because of the many fabulous things I have seen here. There is some really phenomenal craftsmanship and some of the projects I have seen are absolutely beautiful. I hope my renditions come out half as nice as what I have seen.

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a little over a year ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Have your say...
