I’m just posting a hi I’m new to the forum and woodworking in general.
I posted this on my profile page so I hope you don’t mind a repost here
Hi and thanks for the welcomes.
I have to admit, aside from making a few workbenches and a cider press, oh and a workshop/ mancave out of wood, I have had little experience. I have spent three decades working in metal. Building rally cars, kit cars and motorcycles, as well as tarting a few bicycles up. However after a life changing accident where I was hit by a car cycling home from work I have had a lot of time on my hands. As I will never ride a cycle again I decided to try and build a recumbent trike out of carbon fibre. To do so I will need to make jigs and templates out of wood as well as purchase / build tools. But after getting into the research of the woodwork tools I started to think that woodwork looks fantastic and something I want to try. I got through 120 pages of LumberJocks yesterday and I really want to be a part of it. I have already bought a router and I will purchase a table saw, make a bandsaw and sanders myself with the fantastic designs on here. I have months ahead of me before this can begin but this site is giving me hope and inspiration

welcome, sounds like a fun project to build with carbon fiber. You might want to look around here for recumbents, there is at least one build of wood lamination maybe more. Could be just as much fun.
