I have been around wood all my life (My Dad was a carpenter/home builder) but my experience was always framing where "close" was "good enough". Decks, gazebos, pergolas, etc. and the only "joinery technique" I ever used was a 16oz. Plumb claw hammer and some 12b nails.

It's only recently that I began to deal with (real) woodworking but I am enjoying my shop time more than anything in recent memory. A few months ago I began with building some "shop projects" where some less than exact cuts might be forgiven. My desire is to build on those skills that I "thought" I had until I can turn out some detailed work (like I see here on Lumberjocks).

Welcome to LJ’s.. Your prof pic reminds me of myself, and 14 others that loaded up a trailer similar to yours, and went to Sturgis back in 1990… Wow, seems like a few weeks ago, but, time sure flies by. Look forward to your projects, etc.

Thanks Roger – the profile picture is from last July when we loaded up and went to Fraser, CO and rode for 12 days throughout the Rockies. We used to ride out and back but that last 2 days across Kansas/Oklahoma was definitely a “buzz kill” so I bought a 20’ car hauler and outfitted it with wheel chocks, new custom ramps and plenty of D ring tie downs. It sure made the trip back home a lot nicer.
