Location: Oceanside, California

I just retired, well sort of retired. I consult part time for a Computer Reseller dealing with IP Security and Digital Signage. I started a hobby five years ago, woodworking and collecting every power and hand tool I could find. Now I am going to school to officially learn how to be a cabinet maker and furniture builder. I have a great workshop or as my wife calls it a hobby shop, because a workshop actually makes things where a hobby shop just collects tools and stuff. I want to create a blog about my experience going to woodworking school. I want to create a record of what happens and share it with others, who may not be able to attend because of time, money or location,

Welcome to Lumberjocks, John. I attended a few woodworking classes in a similar program at Cerritos College a few years ago. I hope to get back there at some time or maybe down to Palomar. I live almost half-way between the two schools. I think it was 45 miles to Cerritos and 50 miles to Palomar.

Good luck with the classes. We’re all looking forward to your posts.

Todd – That the first time I’ve seen your “Welcome” video. That’s a great way to welcome new members.

Howdy thar pilgrim.
The most important thing to learn is every time you go into that shop, stop, take a deep breath, tell yourself, OK, concentrate. This stuff will bite you quicker than a snake. We all have to pay, just try to get the discount.
