Glad to Know You

I've recently retired and am always looking for a new hobby. Although I've been very active in home repairs such as plumbing and electric, I have no precise or in-depth woodworking skills and very little in the way of equipment beyond the usual hand, jigsaw, circular saw line-up. I want to go slowly with an eye on expenses and most of all: safety.

I would be most appreciative of any help I can get, along with thanking you for putting up with my stupid newbie questions.

Welcome Oldie! I'm recently retired too (well, almost 3 years now. That's fairly recent isn't it?) Anyhow, glad to have you among us. This is the place for any help or questions you need answered. Although we may josh around with each other from time to time, we never screw around when it comes to safety. So if you have a concern about a method or technique, ask !!!
