Greetings from Washington

Hello,

Obviously my name is Scott. I live in Whatcom County in Washington and drive truck for a living. I recently started some simple woodworking projects and am working on some outdoor benches. Unfortunately I didn't show my interest in this area 20 years ago when my grandfather was still around to teach, but I do think of him fondly and often while working in my shop. Having never even taken a shop class in school when I was growing up I find myself making a significant amount of newbie type errors but I have managed to memorize Tim Taylor's cardinal rule: "Measure once, cut twice."

I came here looking for a place to learn and it seems as if this may be a good place for it.

DC?

Whew! For a second there, I had flash backs to a IRS audit.

Welcome. This is a great forum.

Welcome Scott

And to you too Russ.
The Pacific Northwest is a beautiful place with lots of redwood burls.
I dont know the status today but back in the 1980's, Washington state was becoming a popular area for some of the best woodworkers, woodturners and other artists in the U.S.

It isn't the fact I started late that causes regret. It is the fact that I blew the chance to learn from my grandfather much of what I am teaching myself. He had a wonderful gift and it would have been an honor to learn at his side. Sadly that opportunity is now gone forever. That is my regret though.
