Amateur woodworker new to forum

Hi all,

New board member here from the Pacific Northwest. I have done my share of woodworking, primarily making various cabinets but also some other items including audio speakers and a poker table. I love building things and the sense of satisfaction from a job well done. I have a small stable of tools right now including the basic drills, miter saw, router, etc... I would like to purchase a table saw next and in fact, my next post will probably be the dreaded, "which table saw?" post.

Woodworking is just one of many hobbies I have, but it is probably one of few that will stick with me over the years, as my body starts saying "no" to my other hobbies such as dirt biking and windsurfing. Anyway, it is great to have this site as a resource for when I have questions or need advice. I'll try to do my part as well and offer answers to and give input to other threads.

Matt

Welcome from Texas.

If I listened to my body, I'd be on the couch all day . Prolly in a drunken stupor...til the $$$ ran out.
