Brand New From California


Brand new to the forum. I live in California (east part of San Francisco bay area), quite new to woodworking and have some projects (simple, but challenging to me) I would like to get started on. Still acquiring tools, but have some a Ridgid TS3660 tablesaw, Bosch 1617EVSPK router kit, drill press, router table, etc. I have a question on a next tool, which I will post elsewhere, and look forward to suggestions.

Hey Phil, welcome! what kind of projects are you going to start with? Simple one are the best to learn on. Sounds like you're well on your way in the tool department. Hold onto your checkbook, the more you learn, the more stuff you're going to want to get

Thanks for the welcome. First projects are to build cabinets and drawers for the garage to get organized. I already built a 96" long workbench that will need to serve as a general purpose bench for other things. I also am rebuilding a Southbend 9" lathe and will also have a small mill, so cabinets and drawers are really needed for wood and metal working tools. I am ordering tomorrow a Groz 7" or 9" quick action vise, but not sure I need the big 9". Both are on sale, which expires end of tomorrow.
