Hi Everyone,

I want to say thanks to everyone for the warm welcome here on lumberjocks. I have been browsing the site and am extremely excited about everything it has to offer. Everyone here seems great and I look forward to sharing my experiences, both good and bad, with you all. I am 26 and have just discovered my new found hobby at the same time as starting a family (newly married and a 7 month old daughter) and a new career (firefighter in Kissimmee, FL). I just finished my first project, a workbench, and hope to get the pictures up soon of the shop and bench. So, thanks again for the welcome.

Frank

Welcome Frank. Hope you know that your shop time is going to be cut drastically because you’ve found LJ’s. This place will keep you at your computer longer than you realize. Great people, interesting posts. Lots of fun. And some of the most fantastic projects you’ll see anywhere.

I too just started woodworking. I also chose to make a workbench as my first project. Where we differ is that you got a 16 year head start on me. By the time you hit 42, your daughter will be in high school, and you will be good enough to fashion a shotgun from curly maple, to keep the boys at bay.
