Hello from SW Washington

Just stopping by to say hi.

I'm no where of being a pro at wood working, I made a few different items out of wood, like a nice clock for my mom back in Junior High, and simple bird houses from time to time, I made myself a nice four tier shelf for my bedroom, and combo bookshelf and a file rack.
I have also built 4 snake enclosures and stands of which two are ladder stands or what ever they are called and two tortoise pens.

Oh keep reading.
You'll be addicted soon, and then comes the tools, and shop space to feed the addiction.
Next, the habit isolates you from family, your money goes into tools, and they must cautiously enter your drug den (shop) to try and do an intervention on you.

Ok I'm a bit overboard,....or not.
Welcome.

I only need my table saw, and my chop saw, and if those don't cut it, I have my Dremel if all else fails. LOL

My main tools are a chain saw, a high speed grinder w/36 grit. A DA sander, but it doesn't end there. Then you got to do finishing touches.
(If you haven't guessed from this, my work is devoid of fine joinery)

Enjoy!

Welcome from Texas !!!

Welcome to the forum.

We just use lead and gunpowder down here to do our woodworking. Just kidding.

You will be surprised when you get to a point of wanting to try a new techniqe and find that you don't have the proper tool for the job. Then you will find yourself at the tool isle with a dream like state of mind with your eyes glazed over drooling like a lobotomised person, staring at your next purchase. This is all before you even leave the shop to get to the store.

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

Thanks to Google Sketchup I was able to do this:


that shelf in the upper left corner is what I made, all 1"x2"'s and 2"x2" corner posts, just shy of 6'
