Welcome, Ducktape. I like your story. I also got started in woodworking for the same reason about 10 years ago. I was shoping for a TV cabinet and looking at crappy cabinets and price tags in an unfinished furniture store and remember telling the wife, "heck, I can build a piece of crap!" And, it grew from there.
Welcome, I think you'll like the forum. There's a lotta nice guys (and gals) here,,,,,,,,, and many of them are pretty good woodworkers. Don't forget to post some pics of your projects - that's how I get my inspiration.
