Hi my name is joe I’m 30 years old and i am new to this blog stuff. I’m a fulltime Husband, full time father and a part time woodworker. I live with my wife and kids in a rural area of Pennsylvania. I grew up learning my woodworking skills from my father, a body man for 35 years and a man that when it came to doing anything he did it himself. So I learned alot from. I also learned alot from my father-in-law, i remember meeting him for the first time (to take his daughter out for the first time) he was sitting behind a scroll saw cutting out things for christmas, years later after sitting down and talking with him and marring his daughter he gave me that scroll saw. Scroll sawing has become one of the main woodworking tools in my shop, i enjoy making the holiday themed items for my wife and family members. And within the last few years my woodworking skills have grown from a kid in shop class to a young man that learns as he goes. I’ve done projects for people that i never thought i could build, a hallway table, a coffie table and two endtables, two bookshelves and a doll house. Witch brings me to my latest project. Project X, i call it project x because i can not let my wife know. With all these other projects they have been for other people. Well project x is for her and only her she has know idea what it is untill i give it to her. So i will keep everyone up to date how the project is going and how excited my wife is getting to get it.

Welcome to LJ’s Joe.

I bet your wife will be thrilled when you present Project X to her.

I look forward to following your progress…

In the meantime, don’t forget:

Be Careful!
