thanks for the welcome, some more background. woodworking seems to be a family trait. my father has a great woodshop and until recently i found no interest in woodworking. 2 yr ago i decided i wanted to build something with my dad so we make a cherry and maple queen sized bed and i have made a jewelery box for my wife…. i believe i will spend much of the yr. putting together my shop and building jigs and accessories i might need for bigger projects. my first two projects now are a workbench that is portable and space saving along with a router table!
