Former corporate guy. Declared permanently disabled due to complicated eye problems. Greatest difficulty is with any sort of NEAR work (as opposed to looking off into the distance).

Gotta' do something, though, and ... woodworking really appeals to me!

I have to really pace myself, and -- maybe more than most people -- jealously guard my fingers! I'm going to have to take a whole lot more than I can give ... at least at first ... but I'm excited about this -- for me -- hobby, and look forward to learning and contributing all I can!

Look forward to seeing your projects and posts.

Thanks, Bureaucrat! Thanks, Karson!

Hey, All.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I’ve lurked around this site for a couple of weeks, but … had to take the plunge and join … ‘officially.’

I’m pretty new to all of this, and—as my profile says—have some pretty distinct challenges (visually impaired, and have significant difficulty with near work), but … I have a brother who’s a woodworker, and has been in the tool biz for years. He’s served as kind of an inspiration and encouragement to me.

I’m fascinated by this woodworking stuff, and more than a little daunted by how much there is for me to learn … BUT … that’s half the fun!

My repertoire of projects done is really limited, but … my list of projects TO do is growing like a weed (I’m sure y’all understand that part)!

I’ve got a wine rack in process right now, and a storage bench in the finishing stage (meaning: handed off to my wife!).

I’m looking forward to participating, here, and to learning all I can (and sharing the tiny bit that I already know (LOL)).

Thanks much, All!

Great site you’ve got, here. You’ve earned a collective bow for your total contributions. Much treasure lies within.
