Location: Eastern Ct

For the past 14 years, my work home has been in the operating room at the hospital. 12 years as a surgical technologist (usually with my hands inside of someone), and after returning to school at the age of forty, became an RN in the same hospital operating room. I did do one year as a psych nurse and loved it. You know what they say... takes one to know one ! LOL
My early work years included Draftsman @ Pratt and Whitney, HVAC mechanic for my husbands business, and trial parts inspection at a local casting foundry. WOW guess I've been around. My brain is very mechanically inclined, and I'm always designing, or as I call it... pondering.

My husband and I have two beautiful grown girls, the second is almost out on her own.

With all that said, I now have time to do things I've always wanted to do but wasn't able to because of finances and demands of children. I've been buying tools like some women buy shoes, I can't have enough.

Hi to everyone,
I keep coming to this site for project inspiration and technical info for the shop. I feel like I already know many of you. I like the support you give to all your fellow woodworkers so decided to join. I just started my shop up in October, and have been obsessed from the beginning. I have purchased a multitude of power tools in the short time , and am just figuring out how to put it all together. Marc Spagnolo was my initial inspiration with his cutting board video. My engineering brain went crazy along with a passion for exotic wood, and here are some of my first projects…

These aren’t finished yet, just need some sanding and mineral oil to finish.
Thanks for the warm welcome,
Lisa (aka- dustbunny)

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

Welcome- This is a great place for information and inspiration. Nice cutting boards.

Keep buying tools. It’s a nasty habit, and there is no cure.( maybe there should be a Toolaholics Anonymous)
