I worked in the auto business for many years in my youth, later in the insurance industry. I am now retired and disabled to the point where I can no longer restore old cars and build hot rods. I have always wanted to work with wood more than just building storage shelves and simple benches. I have acquired an old tablesaw, and mitersaw, and bandsaw, along with several various power sanders and my dad's old 1/4" benchtop drill press. I am working mostly with pine to get a feel for the equipment and material, just the basics. I hope in time to have the skills worthy of the investment in hardwoods. At this point it looks to me like learning joinery is key, along with critical, consistent measuring are essential to good looking strong projects. Also, the ability to think several steps ahead and see it in your mind will keep mistakes minimized.

I hope the seasoned veterans of woodworking can be patient with a noob running around asking questions that have already been asked over and over. I do promise to research for a reasonable time first before posting dumb questions.

Thanks for having me aboard and reading my profile.
