Long Version: After many years of off and on time working with different wood projects, the wife asked me to build a dining table for our new home and at that moment I was exposed as the hack woodworker that I truly am. So, in order to save face and maintain some shred of manly dignity, naturally I tore off into the world of YouTube and Google to delve deeper into the craft with which I've flirted for years but to whom I've never fully committed.
Short Version: The wife wants me to build a dining room table. I put it off because I have no confidence in the minute woodworking skills I possess. Here I am.
With the "why I'm here" out of the way, here's a brief bit more about me. As of this post, I'm in my late 30's with two youngin's and a great wife. I'm heavily involved with my local church, love to golf, am a lawn care nut, and now aspiring to get back to the woodworking that tantalized me while in college in the early 2000's. I'm an architect here in Indianapolis and, as such, typically overthink most any project I attempt.
A veteran of many online forums for different hobbies and topics, I'll do my best to use the infamous search button whenever possible but, admittedly, sometimes I post when I don't have the time to search.
Looking forward to lurking around here and, if you get a chance, go have a look at the dining room table advice post I'm going to be putting up in about 20 minutes... as soon as I can figure out which forum is most appropriate for the post.
