Greener than green

Hi all,

I'm new here and very new to woodworking. To be honest I have not even started. To be completely honest, I'm not totally new. I've been lurking for a couple weeks now reading other threads. I've very much enjoyed the Kenbo/Buggyman build thread and have read it from post 1. Took me a couple days though. I have recently torn down a storage room in my garage to make room for my shop. The storage room was too small to be of any use but took up valuable wall space. Finished running new electrical and bought the material to Sheetrock. I have enough experience with Sheetrock to know I'm not going to enjoy it. But its gotta be done. Looking forward to putting my shop together.

A little about me. I'm a police officer in Memphis, Tn for the past 5 years. I have a beautiful wife of 4 years who stays at home but has a full time job taking care of three wonderful children ( 3,2, and 1). Yes we are done!!! Needless to say my time is limited but I carve out as much time as possible. So there you have it, that's me in a nutshell.

I know I will get great advice from everyone as I progress in my woodworking and I look forward to it.

Don't the wife always outrank the husband?

You might consider leaving the sheetrock unplastered so you can remove panels as needed in the event you need to upgrade the wiring. It was pretty darn handy for me when I redid my shop.

That's a good idea Gary. Have not thought of that. I will consider it. I do have the intentions of building a stand alone shop in the backyard... Eventually, not in the near future though. Thanks

Welcome to the forum and thank you for your service!

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did — in his
sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

Hey firemedic. Want to hear something crazy. Just yesterday a road raging @$$hole actually shot at one of our ambulances! Unbelievable!! It's getting to the point where firefighters and paramedics need a pistol too.

I hear ya, one of the EMS services in New Orleans is part of the Police Dept and has commissioned officer as medics. Needles to say they do carry guns and cuffs.

You never know what you might find on other ambulances immediately following hurricanes down here though, *cough* *cough*

When i lived in STL one of the suburbs near St Louis lost a FF when he was shot with a hunting rifle responding to a house fire... by the guy that lit the fire and wanted his house to burn down.

Fortunately, in the municipal where I work, we have a very good relationship with the PD. They will generally be on scene when we arrive to medical calls to watch our backs.
