I'm an avid woodworking amateur.

I got started in this hobby in the late 1980's while trying to slap together some boards for a stereo cabinet. I still have the horrendous result of that effort sitting in my unfinished basement (next to the shop) to remind me that it is possible to improve.

My shop is about 750 sq ft in the basement of my home and spills out in to the remainder of the basement (much to my wife's dismay). I make it up to her by making her anything she wants - she has 8 or 9 different jewelry boxes I've made her over the years.

I've learned primarily by reading every woodworking magazine in existence but if I have to give credit to any one magazine - it's Woodsmith. A great step by step approach to projects for a beginner (or even an advanced woodworker).

I've steadily taken on greater challenges and added to my skills by attending the Marc Adams school a few times and took a weekend class from Darrell Peart who was incredibly gracious and helped me with my Greene & Greene style desk (his design).

I love this hobby more every year because of the never ending challenges it brings me and the ability to actually see something wonderful come out of a pile of boards.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months 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…

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

Wisty

-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Have your say...
