I got interested in woodworking after attempting to build my own mantlepiece. I went out and bout home shop grade equipment and made my garage or will make my garage my wood shop. I keep adding on to it so I will never finish it. I will probally asking for some tips from everyone that will take the time to give them. I work as a Biomedical Engineering Tech. for over 30 years so that will tell you how much I know about wood!
Thanks ahead for any help you may give me in my new hobbie.
