Topic tags/keywords: learning the woodworking trade

Hi all- I am a new member here and also new to woodworking. I wanted to say thank you for creating such a board as this one so I can learn. I really am not good at angles or even what some tools do. I am wanting to learn. Recently, divorced and gave my business away so I could focus on me. Anyway, if I ever ask questions that sound stupid I apologize. My focus is on making small things I can sell and my love is in wildlife conservation. Thanks again!

welcome “a board” man! I stumbled upon this site about 2.5 years ago. I was a complete newbie to woodworking when I joined. I have learned SOOO much. This site has been a huge inspiration and huge source of knowledge to me! We are glad to have you with us!

Welcome to LJ’s, there are no stupid questions, I have been woodworking for almost 30 years and I still have questions:)

Welcome !!!

Sorry about the divorce. I hope you’re finding your way to your new normal.

Ask away. If you ask a “stupid question” that I haven’t already asked, I’ll be impressed :-)

Trappermac,as far as I am concerned,there are no stupid questions.To some of us they might be rather humorious,but you can’t hear us laugh any way.In this hobby none of us knows every thing,the best way to learn is post questions ,and read the other questions other people have asked.also the search ,{just below the right corner}has helped me a lot.Have fun and be safe.

Have your say...
