Hello folks!
What a great welcoming committee you all have here. Thanks for all the messages.
I'm disabled and have free time to work on projects for the house. My grandfather got me started in it when I was just a child as he also got me fishing when I was like 4 or 5. May God rest his soul. So I look forward to getting into this wonderful thing called wood working.
I worked in woods when I was younger for a short while. Wow so much has changed. I almost have my complete shop in the garage set up. A Steel City Table Saw, A Grizzley 16" Band Saw, a Dremel Scroll Saw, A Small craftsman table saw I use for dado, a Clark Drill Press (Floor Model), an older bench top drill press, a Porter-Cable router, a Hitachi Plunge router, a Craftsman Radial Arm saw, a Delta Sliding miter saw, and a Ryobi planer, a craftsman Belt/disk sander, a Bosche belt sander, a cheap Cummings Tool wood lathe and a scroll saw and a couple of finish sanders with a Shop Fox Dust collection system set up for all of the tools. I am about to get started working with the wood again. I just finished setting up the dust collector and I'm very excited in starting to make some stuff. I am a big fan of staining as I use to finish and refinish products for an unpainted furniture store back in the late 70's. My first project will be a Sliding Cross Cut Sled and a few jigs. Also I'll be practicing with some woodburning as well. So any tips on wood burning or anything else would be great! I'm a Newbie or feel as I am so I may ask alot of stupid questions for a long time. Again thanks for all the welcoming messages!

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
