New here and have always been fascinated with woodworking. Cabinetry in particular but really any good piece of woodworking doesn't go unappreciated.
I moved a GREAT deal growing up from father being in the military and then his promotions moving us from satellite office to satellite office. I have strong relationship with my family and, at 36, have a decent sized family of my own.
I have a wonderful wife and three children: two daughters at 15 and 17 (17 year old is in college) and a 2 year old son. Yes... I started early. haha.
My grandfather was a hobby woodworker as well as my father. Well, they were hobbyist electricians, welders... take a pick. Jack of trades sorts. Their wood work always fascinated me but... I just stayed so busy growing up I never took the time to learn from them. I regret that dearly now.
Over the years, I have made friends that are amazing carpenters and, now that life is slowing down a bit for me, I am wanting to go beyond building steps which involves no more than a drill and a compound saw.
I am SO looking forward to even the most basic of cabinetry that I am just beside myself.
As well, I am looking forward to picking the brains of several on this board for their knowledge and getting far enough along where maybe I can give information to the following cast of newbies.
As a life long musician, if I can EVER build cabinets for amplifers and speakers like my friend Scott can, I don't know what I'd do with myself. I'd never make a dime cause I'd just look at the finished work and not sell it. haha.

Look forward to posting on here!
