I have posted a couple of threads already, so I guess it's only right that I introduce myself.
I am a retired Marine living outside Camp Lejeune. I really enjoy building furniture and cabinets, but right now my love is canoes! I also recently built my first paddle after seeing one a buddy of mine bought online. I didn't think the quality of his was very good, and it motivated me to make one (BETTER). I posted it on here in the finished projects.
I have a blog that I started just for me to keep a record of the canoe building process as I went through it for the first time start to finish. You can check it out at http://whatsjamesdoingtoday.blogspot.com
I look forward to establishing contacts and exchanging ideas and techniques on here. I also consider myself pretty knowledgeable on many aspects of woodworking (not an expert, just a student) and would love to help wherever I can. Please don't hesitate to contact me directly if you think I can help.
I hope this doesn't sound egotistical of me (being the new guy and all). I really am just a humble guy.
Anyhow, I look forward to hearing from you all. Take care!
One last thing. Can someone tell me how to assign a picture to my profile and add a signature line? Thanks.
