Hello all,

Just a bit about myself, I started woodworking a year or so ago, my only other experience with woodworking was in high school shop about 20 years ago.

I work as an engineering technician, so a large part of my job is product testing in which I design and build fixtures for the different tests. I am also a volunteer/ paid on call firefighter. So wood working is something I do in my spare time to relax.

My goal in woodworking are more in building for me and my family area and not in the money making side of things at this point. For future project I would like to build a new vanity and cabinets for a bathroom remodel and reface our kitchen cabinets and build new doors and drawer for that.

RE- plastic lumber
By not rigid I mean that there is considerable “flex” to this material. it isn’t as stiff as wood is :)
The color is solid, all the way through.
