Hello from North Georgia

I am a new to wood working. While in the past, I have done some home renovation and improvements, in the last several months I have started to do some projects that require a little more patience and thought. I'm in the process of putting together a rather modest woodshop and am starting to see the need for more accurate tools.

I enjoy reading the forum to see what others are doing. I must confess that the projects I have seen are rather intimidating. As in other areas of interest (computers, photography, videography, etc.), I have found the internet to be a great source of information and inspiration for my new hobby of woodworking.

I enjoy giving gifts that hopefully have more meaning to my family and friends than something just bought from a store. In the future I'll post a few pictures and hopefully you'll give the novice a little grace.

Tl Foster Welcome to the forum. True being told I am a little intimidated by some of the work here to. But this is a great bunch of guys and gals here that dont mind sharing what they know.

TL,
Welcome to the forum.
Don't let some of the beautiful work shown on the forum intimidate you. Every time I go to my woodturner's club meeting I see things that amaze me. It gives me ideas and something to strive for. Just take it one step at a time and enjoy yourself.
