New to Lumberjocks. Wanting to learn how to work with wood and make useful things or at least something that looks cool. I have a mechanical design and drafting background and I usually use 3D solid modeling software to make models for use in creating drawing packages. What can I expect from this site?

Dauphin, with that background you can expect a lot of questions from newbies like me with NO background!
And ^^^^^ what they said!

I’ve found an open group of people who offer good advice and will help you avoid some mistakes, help your projects look and work better, and inspire you to try new things. Often, this is packaged with entertaining stories as well.

What Randy said…

Your mechanical drafting background will be a great asset in your woodworking endeavors. At the very least, even if you don’t render a formal dimensioned drawing, you have the ability to scrawl out a very decent working plan for each of your projects.

Good luck with your woodworking, and welcome to LJs.

I model pretty much every project I undertake… I feel it makes me a better woodworker, because I identify problems before I start cutting, and it makes me a better designer, as I get deeper into the details of a model, when I know I have to build it.

I also have grown my CNC skills through my own personal woodworking, as the typical geometry we cook G-code for at work is simple 2D shapes.
