Hello Everyone

My name is Richard Hill. I'm 15 years old and I'm from Oregon. I've been into woodworking since I was only 3 years old. I'd watch The New Yankee Workshop on TV any chance I had. I suppose it's genetic since everyone in my family is good at woodworking.

I have a growing collection of tools including a Ryobi table saw, a cordless drill, a corded drill, a set of chisels, a set of screwdrivers, some rasps, a hand cranked drill press (I just got it 4 hours ago), a 1/4 sheet sander, a scroll saw, and a coping saw. If I need a tool I don't have, I barrow from my Grandpa who has a fully loaded shop.

I've made lots of things, mostly at my school's wood shop. My favorite thing I've made is an oak nightstand with a zebrawood top. The zebrawood cost as much as everything else in the nightstand ($36), but it was worth it.

I joined this place because there are many things I want to learn about woodworking that no one I know knows.

Welcome rich, there are quite a few kids running around here. Many of them are quite talented.

We're glad to have ya and look forward to seeing some pictures of your work!
