Really excited to be here!

02-21-2009 01:48 PM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I’m going to have to get used to LJ not meaning “LiveJournal,” as it has for me these last 5 years. Interestingly, it’s the evaporation of all my friends’ comments on my other LJ that has me so excited to find this place. I think they’re past their limit on hearing about woodworking every minute they’re around me, or reading my journal. They’re all computer nerds :) How have I not found this place before?! Actually, I have. I’ve stumble...

Intro

02-25-2010 12:23 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 16 comments »

Hi everyone, I’ve been viewing many of the projects here and am litterally awe-stricken at the quality of the workmanship here. I hope to make some contributions in the future of my own that will stand up! A little about me … Not having the tools nor the space in a rental or a condo, I had focused on other things such as cycleing and computer repair. Now, however, I have a modest home to which I am the proud owner of with my wife of 3 years and a baby on the way. What a time...

Introduction...

02-23-2019 10:41 PM by Dan Best | 6 comments »

Hello fellow woodworkers!I’m just introducing myself, Dan Best to ya’ll and giving you a little information about me and my work. I’m a retired BLM Interpretive (education) Park Ranger from Oregon where I would during my winter down time in the Oregon Cascades make little wood projects for family and friends. Five years ago I moved to warmer weather in Arizona where I traveled a lot and made giant adventure beds for family and was looking to start a business until I had a re...

Hello Everyone!

09-01-2008 02:16 AM by trice | 12 comments »

Hey guys and gals. I just stumbled across lumberjocks and love it. I have done alittle bit of woodworking/carpentry in my day, but nothing crazy. I am definately a rank amateur. I have recently been getting the itch to actually learn to work with wood properly. Until now I have always just cobbled stuff together when needed, sometimes more successfuly than others. I have always been the type to do things for myself, but I have found that as I get older, the need/want to be self sufficient in ...

Blog Introduction

11-14-2016 04:43 PM by Big Foot Bows | 1 comment »

My name is Kirk Lavender. I live in a little hamlet called “Mulino” that is located about 30 miles south of Portland Oregon. I’ve lived here for 26 years and built my own wood shop in the summer of 96’ on our little 2 acre ranch. The original farm house was built in 1886 and was on the old stage coach line from Oregon city south to Molalla. Its a very peaceful setting out here surrounded by larger 20-40 acre farms that are mostly used for pasture and hay fields. i a...

Introduction and TS woes

02-10-2013 04:41 PM by dschlic1 | 0 comments »

I want to introduce my self to the LJ community. I have worked with wood as a pastime most of my life. In fact in the ‘80s I built a 23’ sailboat out of wood. However after that I only dabbled in wood working, mainly doing fix ups, repairs and small additions to the house. In December of last year, my wife came up with an idea to add some shelves to concrete columns in our back porch. This turned out to be a bigger project then either of os imagined. However the end result was ...

I Forgot - Let me introduce myself....

12-28-2008 06:56 AM by johngoes | 8 comments »

Hello! I stumbled upon LumberJocks a week ago while looking for woodworking tips. Looks like a cool place to hang out. However, I was so busy finishing my Christmas gifts that I didn’t have a chance to introduce myself. I found myself amazed at how many folks submitted nice comments on my arrival to LJ. I started woodworking in 1998, but it took six years to finish the first project I started. I did finish a couple of others between though. For the last six years I’ve been c...

Hello to y'all

10-17-2009 05:21 PM by nailbanger2 | 19 comments »

I just finished signing in ( I’ve been lurking for about a month) and I thought it would be a good idea to say hello. I’m John Abraham, and I’ve been a professional carpenter/ painter/ plasterer/ concrete mason since leaving the USAF in 1982. After seeing some of the projects on here, I find I have wasted these last 20+ years. Not really, but my chapeau is definately doffed to quite a few of you jocks! I currently run my own business remodelling homes or whatever other pr...

The Workbench #1: Arriving upon the scene

07-29-2013 02:04 PM by debianlinux | 0 comments »

It all began in the beginning where most things begin; maybe everything does but I like to leave room for error since I am very prone to those. In the beginning were those men in my life who were for all practical purposes expert craftsmen whether it be wood working, machining or mechanics. As I grew up amidst these time honored tradesmen I developed an acute sense of disdain for those things which required forethought, patience and hard work to achieve. Growing up on a tobacco farm where the...
