Hi, I wanted to introduce myself – my name is Gail O’Rourke, I live in Plymouth MA – AKA America’s Hometown. I am a full time cabinetmaker, as well as full time mother of three in the summer. I have been woodworking for several years. I concentrate on cabinetry, but will build anything that my customer is interested in. My greatest achievement in the shop is one that bring a smile to my clients face. I participate in a few forums, this format is new to me, so I will have to figure that out. I am constantly searching for new inspiration and new ideas… I ended here from a link on my friend Marc Spags site… you know him right?

So, I hope to check in and be inspired, surprised, enthused and excited and feed off the determination of those on the site. I am already impressed by browsing the gallery. You all do nice work!!

-- Gail, http://www.hometownwoodworking.com

Welcome to Lumberjocks Gail! This is truly a one of a kind site, much more that just a simple forum site, Lumberjocks will amaze you with inspiration and good natured camaraderie. I, too, look forward to seeing some of your cabinets, as I worked my way though undergrad in a small custom cabinet shop for five years. That was where I first developed my love of woodworking. I hope you enjoy it here at Lumberjocks (but I know you will)

Wake up, guys.
This lady is the female Norm. Or maybe Scott.

She’s got a show in line to broadcast on PBS called “Woodworking Together”

You can go to YouTube and see a trailer.

How many of us can refer to the Wood Whisperer as “Spags”?

I think you’ll like the place Gail. Lot’s of friendly folks. Lots of interesting work, but the most important thing is the sense of community that has developed here. A great place to bounce ideas around.

Being from Plymouth you must go to Sandy’s on Plymouth Beach for seafood (doesn’t everyone?). If you see a tall cute blonde (named Nicole) working the window would you tell her that Dad has some work for her to do….:)

Question for you Gail. Where was it that you were picking out wood in your video? Always looking for some new sources.

Thanks all! What a warm welcome. I appreciate that. Bob – Yes I frequent Sandy’s – I will say hi to Nicole. The lumber yard is Downes and Reader in Stoughton, definitely a destination. Do you ever go to Sunnyline in East Bridgewater? That’s another.

Thanks again!

Hello and welcome Gail
I recognized your name from a few different sites.
The format is a little different here but there sure is a lot of great people and a ton of talent in this group.

Welcome aboard.
