Thanks to all...

I don't know who all will read this, but I first wanted to say thanks to all who welcomed me onto the site.

My experience is limited to making a cross-bow in 9th grade shop, a small 3-shelf hanging bookshelf in 10th done with hand tools (required on first project), a handful of goblets turned the rest of my high school days for gifts and fun, and most of the episodes of "Woodworks" on DIY, and some of the "New Yankee Workshop".

So that translates to knowing a few of the "buzz words" and terms, with no practical experience or skills.

The parts aren't turning out like I expect them to, and I can only hope that will change as I learn. Until then, I'm learning the skill of hiding the joints :).

I'm a sponge looking to learn.

My best to all, and I look forward to contributing where I can.

Rick, we all have to begin somewhere and eveyone has opportunities to add details to their projects (some would label these as mistakes). GaryK's signature line "The longest journey begins with a single step." speaks volumes about this "adventure".

I am looking forward to seeing some of your projects and the progress you make on your journey.

I'm only about 5 years ahead of you on the curve, minus the shop time in high school. Take your time, you'll get better with every project! I lucked out in that I had a Mentor who opened his shop to me and we shared it for 4 years . Then we parted ways and I saved up a bit, and built a shop. (technically still building it, no real power to it as yet) Hang in there and try building small projects to practice the jointery. Boxes, bookcases etc…

Barowing a line from elsewhere…

A bad day in the shop is better then a good day at work.

Rick, I share your pain my brother.

Two things to remember; we're always learning, and measure twice, cut once.
