Location: Russell Springs, KY

I used to work on a computer, one day after working for 12 hours on a spreadsheet financial model I turned off the light in my office, looked around, and there was absolutely no proof that I'd even sat in the room.

I endeavored for something different and after some time doing "other things" settled on an education in boat building at the Landing School in Kennebunkport, ME. While I was there I started making all sorts of goofy things with scrap wood: CD Cases, cutting boards, a chess board, some soap dishes. Little projects to pass the time.

Now I'm working as a subcontractor in Southern Kentucky and hoping to build a hobby shop in my storage garage. I have a miter chopsaw, and a 14" bandsaw. I have more hand tools than I'm willing to list.

Projects that I will be working on in the coming months include a cedar chest restoration, a new porch swing for my grandfather's house, another chess board for a good friend of mine (along with pieces) and a kayak that is about half built.

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 just about 2 years 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…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

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...
