I'm originally from Newport, KY but had been in the Army for almost 24 years and retired in Carthage, NY near Fort Drum. I've been woodworking as a hobby for about 7 years or so. It seems every time I searched for reviews or "how to" on something, this website kept coming up and I got a lot of great info from the folks on here so I figured I would join and share a few things that may help out someone else new to this as well as taking advantage of all the shared knowledge on here.
Edit 12 May 2011: I am now a professional woodworker working in a five man (counting me) custom woodworking shop that has been in business for nearly 30 years.

As I’m heading down to my basement at almost 2 in the morning (or is it almost 3? damned daylight savings time) to un-clamp one glue-up and clamp another I can only marvel at my own procrastination. I don’t know how many times over th...
