I am fairly new to woodworking. I have done a few projects, but always had to move the car out of the garage and pull everything out to use it and then put it away again. I now have a shop which I am sure I will have filled to capacity all too soon. This website was recommended to me by my uncle who is a fellow blogger.

Welcome Doug! This is a great community. I’m learning a lot and I’m sure you will also.

Did your uncle explain the rule that you must buy a new tool for everyone who welcomes you? ;)

Thanks for the welcome, I will get pictures of shop soon. I have been checking out different workbenches, there are a lot of good ideas. I bought brackets from Home Depot to assemble the frame, but since I want to use it for woodworking I am considering returning them and using mortise and tenon instead. We’ll see.

Welcome, I am sure you will find this site very helpful.

-- While teaching a class, a gentlemen once asked me: "When chip carving an intricate design, what do you do when you are almost finished and the wood breaks off?" I replied "Cover the kids ears."
