Greetings. Currently I am a student at NCSU and a stay at home dad who needed a hobby and creative outlet. Woodworking became a good fit and I am loving it. As I am just starting out tools consist of the usual hand saws and screwdrivers, a circular saw, set of clamps long and short, miter box and sanders. Looking forward to learning woodworking and acquiring tools to feed the habit.

Welcome to LJs, Dan. It is good to have you on board. We all have to start someplace and it sounds like you have a pretty solid start on your woodworking shop. In time you will be able to build on your shop and tool collection. In the meantime just have fun and enjoy.

Welcome aboard:

Many of us started “small”, in my case, on the dining room table with hardware store hand tools. Keep at it and keep coming back.

Welcome to Lumberjocks, Dan.

Thanks guys. Scott, I love your signature, I was going over a tool wish list and found myself racking up quite the cost list. For now, I’m going to be creative and use what I have to get done what I need to get done. And when I think I “need” something, I remind myself that better men than I have done more with less. So, I look forward to sharing my projects with you and hope to see some of all your guys work in the near future.
