What a welcome! I can tell that this will be a great community, and I’m already glad that I’ve joined. I have absolutely no experience with wood (I’ve ripped some boards, but nothing “real”), but I’m hoping to apply myself this summer and work toward awesomeness.
Thanks to everyone who has already welcomed me. I hope to draw from your experiences (good and bad :) ) as I begin my woodworking and work toward a level of excellence. I’ll be graduating with a degree in Philosophy and Religion this May, so I’ll need some way to supplement (read: produce) income. Woodworking is one of the potential avenues for this, but, really, I just want to work with my hands and connect with one of the greatest trades in history.
