Well thanks everyone for the hearty welcome. I’m a bit of a beginner to woodworking but I think I’m getting better already. Started off with a nice simple shelf, always a must have anyways. Built myself my first table for my 10 gallon fish tank that sits at the end of my bed. Then my bed, built myself a nice sturdy loft. I had no room in my apartment so I had to sneak my desk under my bed. Nothing is quite as sturdy or nice compared to what my grandfather used to make but then again he had 60 years on me. I am still a college student at Penn State. Fortunately I can now fund my projects since I got a nice job in the lumber section of Home Depot, fits well. I’m thinking my next project is either going to be a small bookcase to fit snugly in my closet or a cabinet so my roommates won’t steal my food. Lets see how this goes.

I think your grandfather would have passed on a lot of skills to you…..take your time….you will get there.

Sounds like you have a good background and a job where you will have opportunity to pick the brains of folks with some experience.

Looking forward to seeing some of your projects!
