I'm a woodworking noob. I spent much of my childhood catching planks my dad shoved through his Grizzly, but didn't spend enough time paying attention to learn all that I could. Now that I'm all grown up, I'm finding I need many of the skills my old man used while I was growing up.

My first project will be some built-ins for my office/game room and some cabinets and a desk for my wife's craft room. Once I get comfortable with everything, I want to get in to some finer woodworking like boxes.

Really looking forward to interacting with the community!

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…
