I found this site through the DIY Chatroom. Glad to be here. I've been doing carpentry on an on and off basis since the early 70's. My dad was a carpenter by trade and he passed his skills to me. I won't ever be as good as he was, but I did learn alot (most of which I have since forgot).
My wife and I are still doing some finish work to our house that was damaged from Hurrican Ike back last Sept. Fortunately, we are down to installing some trim and do the finish touch up painting. While going through the recovery, we made a few changes to the house so it will look almost like a brand new home when finished.
I look forward to reading the posts and hopefully learn a thing or two.
I retired from Chevron Phillips Chem Co after 33 years, so these days I shoot wildlife and high school sports as well as youth sports. A lot of the pictures are on my website.
Welcome string. Some of us give nicks here and I am one who does. I dub thee "string". Sometimes I might call you "stringster" like I fondly refer to Cabinetman sometimes as "The Cabster". When I tag the "...ster" on the end it's a term of endearment.
Hello Tony. I went through there Saturday on the way to Surfside Beach (San Luis Pass end).
Nicks are OK by me, Tex. Originally, back in the late 90's I got the name MT Stringer from a fellow fisherman after a long day of fishing on Lake Sabine. He said we need to give you a handle for the internet. I said, well my name is MT Henderson, and MoJo with all his wisdom and wit, blurted out MT Stringer! It seemed to fit at the time, and it's been that ever since. I use it on all the forums I frequent (fishing, sports, photography and woodworking).
