After a long time of googling diffrent projects and constantly seeing and checking out links from the site. I decided I might as well join and get in on all the fun. It’s hard to find good active boards now days but it appears this one is pretty strong.

Im a father of 2, 4 & 9 currently been married going on 5 years and almost have a year in at my job. Its a nice 5 minute round trip!!! I work at a local factory and drive a fork lift. I spend a lot of my free time on the water bass fishing but due to some changes recently. It doesnt appear that I will have the time Ive had the last few years to be on the water. I’ve decided since that is the case to knock the dust off some tools, replaced a few already and get back into woodworking full on. I’m currently focusing on getting my shop set up. Which is a 3 door pole barn/garage unheated of course. The garage has a divider between the 2 sides with a concrete slab on the “one car” section. That is my tackle craft side and where I store most of my fishing gear. The other side is gravel and has issues but I might see about putting some decking down havent quiet decided for sure yet. The nice part of my shop location is once the weather warms back up and I want to work. I can open both garage doors and let the boys play while Im working and still be able to keep a solid eye on them. Both boys are some what interested in woodworking, I dont push it on them but both boys will have their own work benchs in the shop.

Anyways I look forward to getting to know everyone and sharing as well as enjoying what others here have to say and share.
