Hello from another Texan

I've been poking around for a couple days now and really like what you've done with the place, so I figured I'd set up shop (so to speak) and stay a while.

I haven't been doing woodworking for long, but it's a passion of mine. Not like I have to explain that to any of you. So far my projects are limited, but I've done some furniture for my kids. Nothing spectacular, but given the limited resources and experience, I think they turned out pretty well. Maybe when I can look back and laugh at how far I've come I'll post some pics. I've seen some of y'alls work and not quite ready to show just how new I am to woodworking.

I'm ambitious to a fault. My first project was a crib for my son and I decided to design my own and not use plans. Took me every bit of 13 months (thankfully the wife didn't want him in it until he was a little older), but 6 years later, we finally retired it. Lasted two kids, so I'm pretty proud of it.

Anyway, I'll try not to ask any stupid questions without using the search button first, but if I do ask something stupid, just bare with me and point me in the right direction. Thanks for having me.

Welcome. I too got some of my start in woodworking making stuff for the kids, WAY many years ago. You'll find this a cool place to hang out for woodworking tips and talk.


You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

All right another Texan!
Welcome from College Station.
The only stupid questions are the ones you don't ask.

Did you say tool sale?
