March: in like a lion and out like a lamb. Here in Canada the winter months are coming to an end and spring fever is kicking in. And what does that mean? Well, a little fix-it job here, a little build there, and the smell of fresh buds on the trees and sawdust in the workshop.

Some of our LumberJocks are opening up their shop doors, now that the warmer weather is starting to arrive, some are getting to turn down the heat, and others, well, they have the luxury of woodworking year-round, regardless of the weather outside.

Spring is in the air and that means beginnings - whether it is a baby chick, a tomato plant seedling, or a woodworking project!

Happy spring woodworking, everyone.
