I just turned 69, and have never been into woodworking. But times change, and since I got my first table saw ( DeWalt, jobsite), I am having fun. I don't have much room, so I do my wood working in the garage. No big projects yet, but we shall see..........

Welcome, its a great community. When you are ready to post projects try not to post more than one per day. It gives every body a chance to comment and it doesn’t push everybody off the display page. Have fun.

Too late Ken. I am addicted, but not ready for rehab.

I down loaded a plan for an Adirondack table from Yellawood’s website, and I learned that one needs to check very closely the supply list in relation to the cut list. I did not use YellaWood, but I don’t think that should have made a difference. I had to do some extra riping and cutting to make use of what I had bought. Lesson learned, really go through down loaded plans before buying!

I am working with prupleheart wood for the first time. When they say it is hard wood, they mean HARDWOOD!

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself just about 2 years ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

When I finish it, I will post a photo of the Masonic square and compasses I just made out of red oak, purple heart and padauk. Two years ago, I could not do it. Thank you Bessy, DeWalt and Kreg especially. And to the Lumberjacks who gave advice. But, I will never use purple heart wood again. It is way to hard, splits too easy. I had a real learning curve on it. The Padauk is one beautiful wood when finished with a clear poly. I’ll have to post the step stool I made my wife with it.
