Hello, I’m brand new here. I didn’t see an introduction spot so I just decided to post here. I’m 22 years old and from Iowa, I’m pretty new to woodworking and at the moment I am working on building up my tools and basic woodworking projects. I got into this because I work at a lumberyard/ hardware store. I love creating and knowing how things work and go together and I look forward to expanding my knowledge here.

O, to be 22 again and just beginning to work with wood.
Best of luck with your projects, though I think you’ll be fine, for as you said in your bio “I love what I do”. No better way to start.
