Just wanted to say hi. I’ve been lurking on Lumberjocks for a while but just registered today.
I’m a beginning woodworker. Not sure where this interest came from as I nearly failed 8th grade wood shop and never considered myself particularly mechanically inclined. I think what I like most about this is that I can create things that I (or others) will use, and if I do it right, people might actually appreciate the aesthetics of what I put together. My wife is super supportive of all of this, but she tends to get irritated (and rightly so) when I fill the house with paint or varnish fumes.
I have a tiny awkwardly arranged shop in my basement – a little room to expand but not much.
I’ve learned a ton from this site already and I’m looking forward to interacting with everyone.
