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

Thank you all for the great warm welcomes!

I just picked up a small lathe to play with and I am about half way through carving a loon.

Looking forward to posting some questions as I get stumped working then of my achievements and hearing what you all have to say.
