I just wanted to introduce myself, having just joined the site. I, along with my stepson are about to undertake learning some woodworking skills, and have acquired a shopsmith, which we will be picking up next weekend. I know I’ll have lots of questions, and I have already seen that there are lots of highly skilled and generous folks here. Anyway, I’m Lee, and I look forward to the interaction.

Bill, they are pretty good I guess. Though in general, Atlanta is just a bit too big for me. Even after 8 years, I still miss the Birmingham area.

Welcome! There’s a lot of great woodworking stores in the Atlanta area. (I’m over on the east end of the perimeter.)
