Even though I come from a long line of woodworkers, I am relatively new to the craft. My dad is an industrial arts teacher and in retirement developed a woodshop that make most novices envious. While I inherited some of my father’s and grandfather’s old tools, woodworking wasn’t my thing.

A few years ago when the stresses of my work were nearly killing me, my wife went out and bought me a table-saw. This was the spark of a new obsession. Since then I collected a few more tools and built a 12 x 24 shed to house my small shop. I think my wife now regrets buying that saw.

Too much of my life is preoccupied with thoughts that are then processed in digital formats. Woodworking connects me to what is real, provides a creative outlet, and gives me the satisfaction of making something with my hands. It is also a humbling craft which has a way of exorcising my demons of inpatients and perfectionism. I am reminded that I am only a beginner as I see the skillful work of other Lumberjocks and as my scrap pile grows with each irreversible mistake.

After being a long time “Lumberjock voyeur” I decided to take the plunge and join this inspirational community.
