I am looking forward to being a part of this wonderful website. I stumbled across LumberJocks a few months ago and have been enjoying reading all of the posts and viewing the projects. I have almost no experience with woodworking, but I do have a growing interest in learning woodworking as a hobby and figure this will be a great resource to help me learn. I am a middle school band director and find myself with little spare time during the school year, so I am sure my progress will be slow. However, I am currently finishing my very first project. It is a small table to go between our two porch rockers. It is kind of crude, as I am making it out of scrap 2x4's and plywood that were left in our garage when I moved in. Since I will be painting it white to match the rockers, I didn't see a need for the wood to be any nicer.

I'm sure I'll be seeking out a lot more advice than providing it, so I hope that's okay. In the meantime, I'll try to start working on some photos to post.

Take care,
