I’ve been lurking on the site for a little while now and firgured it was high time I joined the fun. Thank you to those that sent me a welcome while viewing my profile. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed many of the topics and checking out the many wonderful projects made by the members here. Some of which have inspired me to build similar items and/or have given me ideas. I hope to be able to contribute a little as well as gain (which I’m sure will be no problem) some knowledge to/from the site.

As far as my shop goes it is a continuous work on progress. I’m just getting back into my woodworking hobby having learned my basics way back when in Jr. High. Most of my equipment is I guess old school from the late 40’s to the 60’s with few newer tools here and there. I’ve spent some time on OWWM site getting my machines up to snuff which I hope will end soon because I’m looking forward to making some saw dust.

With that said I send all a greeting from Kingwood, TX, aka. far northeast Houston.

-- Bob, Kingwood, TX
