Hi all,

I am new here and new to woodworking (beyond homeowner carpentry). My journey started with wood carving (still early stage) and I found tthis place after deciding I needed a proper workbench to base my work off of.

I am really enjoying the inspiration from the projects library. Some amazing stuff!

Today I stopped in at a lumberyard called “the woodery” just to take a peak and ended up spending an hour getting a personal tour of the place and the inventory, discussing options for bench materials, building strategies, etc. What a great resource this place will be for a newbb like me.

Anyhow, just wanted to introduce myself and say thanks for the great resource.


-- I do this for fun.
