Hello from Pittsburgh
My name is Jeff and I'm almost done with my Fundamentals of Woodworking class, taught by Dante DiIanni over at GNA Woodworking in Pittsburgh (my adopted home town). I am absolutely loving the course and can't wait to jump into the craft.
I currently don't have a full blown shop set up, but I do have a reasonable basement, a bunch of hand tools (some Lie-Nielson planes thanks to a generous gift from my brother), and not much else. My wife is very encouraging of this new hobby and is letting me build up my shop as needed. I suspect that the promise of hand made furniture doesn't hurt :)
Anyway, I'm excited to be part of this community and hope that over time I can go from asking lots of questions to answering them. For now, I can use all the help I can get.
