As far as woodworking I'm pretty much a newbie. I've made a few items. I've spent way more on tools than I have on wood. I enjoy the heck out of making a project - designing, figuring out how to build it, building it, learning what I did wrong and how to make it better the next time.
I'm a software engineer for my day job and also write and record music as a hobby.

Thanks guys!

I’ve been wanting to join for a while and have been on the waiting list. It seems like there are a great bunch of people here that are both talented and willing to help those of us with MUCH less experience or knowledge.

It’s really interesting to see all of the different projects and equipment and techniques.

Welcome to LJ’s, great to have you here on the site, I am pretty new at woodworking myself, about 4 years now, and I can tell you, this site is a great place for learning just about anything that has to do with woodworking, and the fellow woodworkers are just great, I need some extra motivation at times and all the nice people here on the site are always glad to help out. It’s Mic

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself just about 2 years 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…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

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

I’m not sure you’ll see this. I only joined LJ a couple of months ago but have been too busy to be active here. What brought you to my attention is your review last year about the Woodhaven box joint jig. I regularly search the Internet to see what is new in box joint jigs because I designed one about 3 years ago. I subsequently licensed the design to INCRA and we have been working on the design, manufacturing, getting it ready for market for over two years. With any luck it should hit the market in a few weeks. Last fall Wood Magazine got an early look at one and selected it for one of their “Innov-8” Awards. It didn’t make the Magazine but is on their website. Your review was very encouraging to me! Every problem you had with the Woodhaven and others you didn’t because you hadn’t used it enough, a user will not encounter with the INCRA “I-BOX”. It almost sets itself and no measuring devices- no calipers, no dial indicator, are needed. I hope you have a chance to see, or better yet, try one out.
