Website:

Hello to everyone!
I've stumbled upon this website, and it looks like a great place to share ideas, and get help with my woodworking skills.
I'm 62, single, and live along the Rhode Island coast in a small town, Bristol.
I'm a computer graphic artist, toolmaker, hub & die maker, and former art educator (a long time ago)
I'm a Harley enthusiast, and just ride locally.
I am a complete beginner to woodworking, but I do have my toolmaking skills to rely on; and the same principles apply; start and stay square!
I've put together some good equipment, although I wish I did buy better equipment; My table saw is a General Intn'l contractors saw.
Grizzly 17" band saw,a Powermatic 6" jointer,Festool circular saw vacuum and panel cutter combo,(which eliminates the need to wrestle a full sheet of material to the table saw. At 1 grand, it was pricey, but a joy to use.I also have a 13" planer. All my equipment is on mobile bases, so my shop can easily be changed whenevery it suits me.
My first project is building kitchen cabinets. So far, I have 3 base cabinets built; the blind corner, sink & a utility cabinet almost done.
That is the carcasses anyway. I'm making the face frames & doors out of cherry.
I've kind of perhaps gone on long enough for now, but will attach photos when I figure out the file size limit & format.
I hope to learn much, and gain those valued skills from the craftsman and artisans here!
Paul

Hello Paul,

Let me welcome to LJs. I am sure that you will find this to be an exciting and enjoyable part of your woodworking journey.

Your shop sounds interesting. I will enjoy seeing pictures of it when you get the opportunity to post them.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Hi Paul … thank you for making me one of your buddies; it was a delightful surprise … as I am not a woodworker but most ardent admirer of all the talent here and wife of a “LJ” member.

One of my husband’s first projects was new kitchen cabinets. So I am anxious to see how beautifully yours will turn out.
