Location: Baton Rouge, LA

I'm just starting out working wood with hand tools. I've been a general handyman around the house, knocking out construction grade stuff using mostly power tools, but in my rapidly approaching dotage I'm trying to venture into a bit of fine woodworking. I don't plan to completely abandon power tools, although I don't have much to really abandon -- bench-top table saw, drill press and band saw pretty much rounds it out (but, I do have what I consider to be a fantastic router -- 3hp Triton -- and a self-built table). I'm looking for a bit of relaxation from the typical routine, and I think that this might be it given that I come from a long line of skilled tradesmen. I think it is in the genes.

Unfortunately, all this fun and relaxation is confined to my spare time, and considering that I have a university job and a 12-year old son, such spare time is at a premium. I hope to pick up an education on this site, perhaps helping me avoid some common mistakes that I would otherwise have to learn myself -- probably over and over again!

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

Thanks for the welcome, everyone—and, yes, I can see how it can become a problem (I just hope it never supplants the desire to actually get out there and, as my wife says, turn big pieces of wood into little pieces of wood).
