Location: Dallas, Tx

I am a college and future medical student, I am going to medical school in Dallas, Tx for the incoming 2014 class. Therefore, I don't really have a lot of time to work on wood projects, but when I do have time I try and make whatever I can. I have only made a few things so far like some stuff out of pallets and some small projects. I am extremely interested in using hand tools and woodworking by hand so I have started to get myself more hand tools. I don't have a whole lot yet so suggestions on where to get some cheap ones or even donations would be welcomed :).

I don't have a shop but I have quick access to my grandfather's shop who is more than willing to teach me useful techniques. Hopefully someday I can have a shop of my own to do some better woodworking in the future.

Welcome to Lumberjocks, we are glad to have you aboard. I think you have chosen a great hobby as a counterpoint to your medical career. I look forward to seeing more of your projects as time permits.
