I am 38 years old and have been woodworking as a hobby since college. I have wife, two kids, dog, cat and a bunny. I currently make pens and cutting boards which I sell to support my habit. I am getting more and more into wood turning and have joined a wood carving group. I am looking forward to meeting you guys. Oh, and I like long walks on the beach.

-- A famous poet once said: “There is a name hidden in the shadow of my soul, the name is wood. Sweet, ever beautiful, earth grown wood. It warms my heart and brings a tear to my eye.”

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.
