Location: Southern IL

I am a retired carpenter and have been a member of the carpenters union since 1959. I actively worked at the trade for 42 years before my retirement in 2001. The last 25 of those years was as a General contractor building custom homes, in fact all but about 4 of those years were spent on custom homes. Woodworking may be a natural extension of building, yet completely different in some ways. I am blown away by some of the projects I see out there. My hats off to guys with the clever designs and fine workmanship. Knowing how to handle tools is only part of it, the rest I must learn and believe me, I am having a blast trying to master some of the projects. I appreciate a venue such as this one to interact with people with the same interest and the willingness to share. Dave

Welcome to Lumber Jocks! This is a great place to get – or give – advice about woodworking on the forums and the project posts are a wonderful source of new ideas. I look forward to seeing your projects and posts.

To get the most feedback on your projects, it’s best only post 1 or 2 at a time. This way you will get feedback over several days and from a wide variety of members.

Please enjoy your membership.
