Just checked my profile and see I haven't posted for 5 years. I had to do a bunch of home renovation work that I thought would wipe out a couple years but it's turned into 5. Just now getting ready to put my work room back together.

I've restarted a bit of wood carving to try and get the feel for that again and have ordered a wood working bench so I can start doing little projects with my hand tools. Some of the larger projects like I've posted before are done with a mixture of hand and power tools. Will have to do some relearning but It's all enjoyable time.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months 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…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Thanks to all for the warm welcome. I am new to woodworking and as I have googled the web for information I have been led time and time again to this site. I was reluctant to join because of my low level of experience but decided to anyway since I have a strong desire to learn.

I enjoy physical activity, ride a bicycle, kayak, make wine any beer. Since I enjoy physical effort I plan to work heavily with hand tools. I’m currenly learning to square boards with hand planes and cut joints with saw and chisel. Will soon be using the basic skills to make simple projects and build from there.

I’ve often gained information on tool purchases etc. from this site and am very grateful.

Again, Thank You Everyone!

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
