Location: North Carolina

I am a 38 year old building designer/draftsman from NC. I have been interested in woodworking for several years but, could not afford to get started in the hobby. My father is a woodworker and has begun to pass along some "gently used" equipment my way. I am lucky enough to have an over-sized 2 car garage. I have claimed some space in the garage for a modest shop. I will probably add some information about my shop in the next few days. I have completed a few projects and I may even post a photo or two if I work up the nerve. Anyway, I am looking forward to participating in the community and I hope to gain a lot of insight and knowledge by being a part of lumberjocks.
