Arrow Are You Lost? Ask A WoodworkingTalk Moderator

Anytime you join a new community you are likely to feel a little lost at first. Perhaps you are not sure if something is against the rules, or you can't figure out which forum to post your question in, this is the perfect place to ask a moderator for help so that we can point you the right direction. Just post your question as a reply to this thread, and the first available moderator will respond.

My name is Joshua Barney and I'm new to your forum and new to woodworking. I only use my iphone to use your forum and I have the app. I cannot seem to be able to figure out how to fill out my profile. I was able to add my picture, but I couldn't add any of my personal info. Everyone I've talked to on here so far has been very friendly and helpful and I was hoping someone could help me navigate my way through the process of creating my profile. Thanks for the help!

Hi Joshua - If your phone app works the same as a PC, you just have to click on the "User CP" in the upper left hand corner of any page, then edit your details. If that doesn't work, I don't have any other suggestions other than to try it from a PC.

I use the app too. It's limited in what you can do using it. If you want to do more setup just go to the regular site page. It can be complicated and I find the iPad app is much easier to use.

I am looking to find real rough sawn cedar 2x4's. Everywhere I look I cannot find any 2x4' s that are actually measured to that size. I am working a project and need the actual size not any different. If anybody can help me out that would be much appreciated.

Is there an iPhone friendly app for this forum? Ok I see that there is an app. More specifically, is it the Tapatalk app? Please disregard I've figured it out. Thanks.

Question I am new to the forum and?

I am building a raised garden bed using sheet metal corners from gardener supply and red oak boards I have had in my garage for over 20 years (finally found a use for them!). I tried screwing the boards to the metal corners but the sheet metal screws that came with the corners will not go in. I tried drilling a hole through the board, but still cannot get the screws to go into the wood. Where can I get some help for this question?

Also one of my boards is 1/4th inch too thick. What is the best way for a non experience person to get rid of that extra thickness on the end of the board so that it will fit in the 1 and 1/2 inch wide slot?

Thanks for your help.

I have an iPhone as well. You can find it in the app store by doing a search for Woodworking Talk.

Your lost. You want to post this question under a woodworking topic.

If I was you, knowing what I know now. I would.....
decide what I wanted to primarily build with the bench.
do a google search on benches.
look at the search in images.
study up on the different types.
get a plan that has an easy to build bench.
build it after studying the plan for a few days.
figure the cost before you start. use hardwood.
buy the best vice you can afford. cheap ones suck.
build it and post pictures and ask questions here along the way.

Al

It's great to join this site. I look forward to learning a lot from the folks here, (if I can learn to navigate the site!).
I'm a beginner, and will probably always consider myself a beginner. I live in southern Illinois and work as Director of Special Education for the local school district.
Now to figure out if I'm posting this in the correct place, how to edit my profile, and how to stay warm in the wood shop.
Thank you, folks!

Hi there,

I am not sure why you can't start a new thread. Can you give me more information? Which forum or subforum were you unable to start a thread in?

If you were trying to start a thread in this section (Getting Started With WoodworkingTalk) it would not have let you because only admins and moderators can start threads in this section.

Thanks for offering to help. I have never participated in a forum and am interested in asking how to insert pegs in hardwood flooring for an antique look. Please tell me how to post the question on the appropriate thread.
