IBEW electrician, retired after 42 years. Started woodworking and turning in highschool. A condition with no known cure. I also fish and grow a veg. garden to supply fresh food. I collect logs in and around my small town, have them sawn. I like trees with a local history. I have a sycamore that my grandfather planted in the early '50's, and an ash that was in my great great grandparents yard. I have a picture of my great grandmother and her sisters under that tree in the 1800'. I plan to make a mission style bedroom set from that tree. We live in that great grandmother's home, so it will be a nice piece to add to the home.

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a little over a year 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…


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

Have your say...
