Topic tags/keywords: circular saw introduction utah wood-working greenhouse

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to introduce myself, I found this forum on another wood-working site and I’ve been lurking and now I’m ready to post! I’m a pretty new DIYer and I’m excited to learn from everyone here who looks like they have a TON of experience. I’m pretty new but I’ve been doing some of my own projects and I’m pretty obsessed with my circ saw (circular saw) and I have 3 already haha. I want to get better at the precise art of it and know every part of what makes it tick.

I’m from Utah and I don’t have much space in my own home so I use my parents garage as my makeshift “lab” for work and I try to do as much as I can there. Over the next few months while it’s cold outside, I’ll start posting a few of my summer wood-working projects as well as what I have planned for next year.

I look forward to learning a lot from you guys and girls and making some cool things! Thanks!

Hey Bob! Thanks for the welcome! For me, a non-Utah native, yes it’s freezing haha, my wife says this is usual and not that bad but I’m still getting used to it. How about you?

Welcome to LJs!

It sounds like you expect the circular saw collection to grow. There are three in my shop too, each with unique roles. A fantastic plastic Skilsaw that does masonry cuts, metal cuts, and other grunt work; a B&D Sawcat that is my lifetime ‘quality’ saw from when they were still made well, and a PC Model 314 trimsaw that is one of the last tools I’d ever give up.

Stay warm, post away!

I transplanted to the coast from Southern Idaho almost 50 years ago. I doesn’t get too cold here most of the time, but 40 and wet can be much worse than 10 and sunny ;-)
