Hello from up north

hey everybody, names Kevin and Im checkin in from up here in Minnesota. Im 18 and love woodworking, my grandpa really got me interested in the hobby when I was younger. He passed away a good few years back, and luckily I am finally gonna be taking in his old equipment so they can be put back to use. I have never had the ablity for a good shop setup, so I havent been able to do much, but Im finishing up the basement and am getting some great tools, so I look forward to gettin into woodworking a little more know, and hopefully I can get some good advice and maybe find something to contruibute myself here.

Welcome, Kevin!
There's a great wealth of information on this forum, posted by some very knowledgeable and experienced craftsmen! I haven't been a member long, but I've already learned a lot. Just remember - the only dumb question is the one that goes unasked!

Welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear about your Grandfather. I myself learned woodworking from my Grandfather and last year he told me he left all his tools to me in his will. I think it's great that you will be able to keep your grandfather's spirit alive in your work and through his tools.

As long as you have space to put things together, that's all that matters! I took over part of our basement. I wrapped the area in heavy vapor barrier, but a bathroom exhaust fan blowing out a window. The plastic keeps the dust from swirling around the house, and the exhaust fan at least keeps the air a bit cleaner when working.

Well yesterday I got most the rest of my tools home, and since a good part of the basement is taken over by one of my other hobbies, model railroading, I will definately be taking advantave of mobile tool bases.

Larger projects that I may consider will definately be needing to be assembled outside in warmer months or upstairs. out basement staars have a hard corner to manouver.
