First off, I am really new to woodworking, I am only 14 and I love the hobby of woodoworking. I love the satisfaction of haveing a great new peice after you have worked so hard on it. I only make small things for now but hope to venture into newer bigger things. I am wishing I hade a lathe to work with because I think that woodturning would be so fun. I only have a small shop because of the size of our basement. It works for me, and I love being in it, it just makes me happy. Please take a look around and if you have a question or comment just ask. Thanks.

-- Tyler, Illinois

Welcome to LumberJocks. Enjoy the community. You are the future of Woodworking – enjoy, learn and pass on the knowledge. You sound much wiser than your young age would indicate. Your Dad and Mom must be very proud of you – I am.

From one “Chicagoland-er” (Naperville) to another, welcome to LumberJocks! When I was your age my only power tool was a bulky, bright orange K-Mart drill and most of what I built started as 2×4’s. You’re off to a early and very impressive start!
