I am a 60yr old steelworker from Pittsburgh, PA, who is fairly new to woodworking. I have a 2 car garage which is 24' X 32' attached to an existing garage which is 9' X 22' which is attached to my house. I am trying to design a woodworking shop into these areas and am having trouble figuring out how to best utilize my space. I have not built any projects yet except for a miter saw stand and a lumber rack.
My intent is to eventually build furniture, guitars ( solid body and acoustic ), and large speaker cabinets.

I am anxious got get started in my hobby and learn from the experienced woodworkers on this site

Thanks for the invite Dante. I wish I would have known about the meeting before today, but I plan on becoming a member. Sounds like fun and I hope to learn more about woodworking.
