Greetings from New Jersey

Hello fellow woodworkers! My name is Everett and I am 18 years old. I started woodworking my freshman year in high school in the intro to woodworking class offered there. I was instantly hooked and have been at it ever since. I also took the second level woodworking class at my high school which was cabinet making and furniture design which was essentially taking what you learned in intro to take on one long term project. I was actually in this class a second year as well through a special program offered in certain classes for students with particular talents. In addition to my initial education and work in school, I have designed and completed many projects at home as well as I began building up a small shop about three years ago. I just graduated from high school last year and I knew that woodworking was what I wanted to get into for a living and I have successfully begun that just a week ago when I found a job at a local cabinet making shop. Most of what they do is custom cabinetry either with laminated particleboard or veneered plywood. Although this is what my work is mostly associated with, my true talent and main focus is furniture making. I love this sort of fine work because I have a very artistic mind and pay great attention to designing detailed pieces with unique decoration. All in all, woodworking is something that has played a big role in my life and its something I will always be doing. Over time after getting more and more experience working in shops, I hope to find work that is more geared toward my nitch and I hope that one day I can make a living building and selling my own custom furniture. So that's my history with wood in a nutshell, I look forward to participating in the discussions on this website and gaining wisdom from those here who have been at this far longer than I have.
