Hello fellow Woodworkers,

I am a new member from Wisconsin. Found your site from watching that crazy WoodWhisperer guy! I have worked in a small, fairly high end cabinet shop for the last 10 years. I would say I am fairly Pro when it comes to cabinet design and building but my overall all knowledge of working with real wood is pretty weak. Being a small shop we farm wood doors and drawers out to companies that can do it faster and cheaper. I am looking to expand my knowledge of wooding and this looks like a decent place to start from what I have seen so far.

Welcome aboard Tim! We can use a few more pros around here. You have to be careful or these guys will have you sanding every thing with 1000 Grit and using wood that they sell by the pound!

Or up to 2400 grit and sell by the metric ton (tonne). Just joking, Tim.

I look forward to your professional input along with the other LumberJock-pros.

Put on your safety glasses, fasten your seatbelt, and buy a t-shirt (just kidding) Welcome to Lumberjocks. And don’t listen to these guys, I don’t sand past 220 (which probably explains why there stuff always looks better.) But then I’m getting better. Last week I bought some 320, 400 and 600 grit (just so i could sharpen my chisels)
