I have only been on this site for less than a month and I want to say what a blessing it is to me to have found you all. I am retired and live in a senior community. We have a woodworking shop with the basic machines, but nothing like some of the shops that I have seen here. I would describe this site something like setting around the morning coffee table with the guys solving all of the world problems. Only this is much more enjoyable. Sometimes, around the coffee table, it gets so noisy that I cannot here what everyone is saying, not so here with you guys. This site is very addictive. I enjoy going here evey day.
Thanks again

We are glad you are here, Ron. My In-laws live in Osseo. We get over there quite often.

Ron,

Welcome! It is always good to find another fellow Minnesota woodworker.

Coffee is always on here!

Feel free to stop over sometime, your a stone throw away.

Welcome to our little island of sanity, and don’t worry, some of the folks here seem to turn out amazing work with little more than a pocket knife, so clearly tool collecting isn’t a necessity to good work!

(Not that it stops me, although I managed to make my current el-cheapo dovetail jig limp along for a bit this afternoon, my wife was pushing for the Lee Valley or the Festool jig…)

Welcome Aboard. It is a good thing that you have access to a real wood shop, and a virtual one here too. We are looking forward to seeing some of your work.
