I started assembling all the pieces I cut last week. Work has been hectic since I’ve been “training” to be a manager. I improved upon the original plan a bit, instead of using a poplar or cedar insert like I had planned, I decid...

I'm fairly new to woodworking but I've enjoyed it all so far.
I've learned a lot from local people and lots more from reading the blogs and other LJ entries that interest me.
I live in a crappy town with lots of crappy people that never want to help someone with a general interest in what they do, so it has been hard to find anyone that shares a similar interest besides me and my dad.
We are also very busy people with jobs and personal lives and lack a shed.
We are lucky to make anything.
I've used computers all my life and in case you were wondering, I use Linux, mostly Ubuntu and Puppy for various reasons. I work at a big blue box home improvement store, coincidentally I sell tools, which is probably the best job to have in the store. I got interested in woodworking about March of 06 and have made a few things, started out in plywood to get my feet wet and got into some pine. Don't wanna waste good wood just yet :) but I plan on getting into some better quality woods here soon.
