I didn’t see any place on this forum to dedicated to introductions, so I thought I’d be polite and at least post something here letting y’all know how much I’ve enjoyed just lurking the past couple of months. The work, techniques, wealth of information, and the friendly atmosphere finally compelled me to take the plunge and join.
I’ve done some woodworking over the years, mostly at a basic amateur level. A couple of months ago I set out to make an heirloom rocking cradle for my not-yet-born grandchild and realized I had to up my knowledge and skills considerably. I gleaned a lot of techniques, do and don’ts from this forum that helped me finish a project with just basic tools that I was happy enough with to give as a gift. I’ll post a couple of photos of the cradle to the Projects section a little later. For every question that arose during the building of the cradle, I was able to find an answer here. So, huge thanks to all that contribute so unselfishly to make this such a big resource of information.
I moderate at another forum dedicated to DIY tile and stone installation, John Bridge Ceramic Tile Advice Forums, so I can appreciate how much effort it takes to keep a site like this running smoothly. You’re doing a great job here, and this will be my go to for anything wood.
