I like working with wood- rustic stuff logs and scrap lumber- free wood makes me happy. I am not a finish carpenter. :) I tend to work in fits and spurts as the spirit moves me (or not.) I cut my own logs and dry them, I don't have a kiln nor a table saw, nor a planer.. ho hum. My "shop" is a small corner in the garage that I can access only when the mower is out. Therefore, I tend to work in the yard on sunny days. I love checking out all the projects displayed on Lumberjocks and envy all that talent!

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

Kelly, when I make some excuses about my workshop (and same as you, for dusty work I work at my yard), a very nice member of the Lumberjocks who alredy comments above – a1Jim, wrote to me to pay attention to the result and not to the facilities, so I share his idea with you :)
welcome to Ljs and already saw your nice result.

Welcome to LJ. This is a great place to get ideas and provide insight to others. Your work will inspire many.

-- I've never seen a tree that I wouldn't like to repurpose into a project. I love the smell of wood in the morning - it smells like victory.

Welcome! My “shop” isnt anything to write home about either so I know the feeling. Just gotta work with what you got! As long as your having fun thats all that matters! All your projetcs look great! I would love to do some work with logs Ive always liked that look. Keep up the good work and welcome! This site is addictive by the way so watch out! Hahahaha!

Well, Kelly, I certainly do want to welcome you here at Lumberjocks. It’s a great place for woodworkers. How big or little your shop is will not be important at all. Neither whether you have a lot or whether you have a little talent, nor beginner or old hand, if you love woodworking or just like it a lot it’s a great place to be.

Hi, Kelly.

It is so nice to hear a woman’s perspective and insights on some of the work posted. The prettiest things I build are a direct result of my wife’s suggestions (directions?)

There are some great LJ’s out there. You should enjoy this addictive site. There are generalists and specialist who can be counted on for input.
