Hello from Florida!

I love to create. Haven't done much woodworks, but a few things. Like a wall screen, and molding and everyday stuff. However, I've seen my father work and I have some pieces that he has made, large to small. Like a playhouse for me as a child and then another one for my children. He also made them a toy box. Simple everyday things that mean alot.

My father died in '91, but I so feel like his common phrase these days. When we would mention that he was good at something or say things like, "Gosh Dad, you can do anything!" He would chuckle and say, "Jack of all trades and a master of none." That's so me!

Anyway, I'm going to skoodaddle around here and just admire the woodworks!

Welcome to the best woodworking site around. Pull up a chair, make yourself comfortable and join in on the fun! I lost my father in '96, and like yours, he could fix or make anything in my eyes. Everyday I spend in the shop I thank him for the knowledge I was able to absorb from him.

Thanks John. We have our wonderful memories. Everything I fix, make, or do by myself, I want to call him up or show him. My father is like my husband with our daughter, he encourages her to do anything she sets her mind to. And tells her she doesn't need a man!

As of this moment, my daughter is the site manager of a construction site. A little bitty petite thing. Old men love her, young men....well, some have to get use to it. Most of them love her. Even my son, only a year younger than her, works with her. I asked him once, "How does it feel with your sister being the boss?" He said, "Are kidding mom? It feels normal. She hasn't changed at all."

Welcome from Texa !!!

Welcome to the forum.
Sorry to hear bout your Dad.
I too have learned much from my Dad and his Dad over the years.
Can't learn that stuff in school.

Tools are like guns, You can never have enough.
Where did I put that tape measure???

Oh, I did some woodworks in school Texas! I was in the 8th grade. Industrial Arts class. Simple stuff like a spice rack, and an angel fish that was on purple crush velvet backgrown.

Our Ag shop classes sometimes make birdhouses, picnic tables, and some other community projects around town. I'm glad to see they keep it going around here.

Thanks so much for the welcome Texas Sawduster!
