Well, Whiskers, welcome to the best woodworking forum on the web.
I also have a few Grizzly tools, as well as many others, they perform well as a whole. You should not have many problems, once everything gets assembled and positioned.

Any ideas on what you think you might like to build, and what kinds of woods you prefer?

I see you live in Athens, Alabama. I’m not that far from you, in Cleveland, Tennessee. The head estimator at my part-time sales job used to be a model builder for the team in Huntsville – he remembers it fondly. He got out in time and pursued a successful career as an HVAC man with his brother in Chattanooga, before part-time retirement. Now he sold off his business and just estimates.
We all have something we are fairly good at here with wood, mine is wooden things with curves in them. I build guitars and bandsaw jewelry boxes, which you can see in my projects.

You do realize you are probably entering the wood market at one of the worst possible times, with the disposable income so low, as you well know, being close to the NASA program as you were. I agree with you totally, it was one of the worst decisions in recent decades, considering how many wonderful things came out of that program.

Good luck, and keep posting, reading, and when you finally put that first project together, post it and join the fun!
