hi from Queens, NY

Hi everyone my name is Keith from Queens, NY. Just checking in to see what kind of information I can glean from this friendly community. I have done quite a bit of woodworking, almost entirely using nothing more than the following:

Set of dovetail chisels
Block plane
Lee valley low angle jack plane
Marking gage
Dozuki
Kujihiki
Razor knife
Makita thickness planer

I'm looking forward to meeting minds with everyone.


Keith

Welcome aboard. Post pics of your work. Rule here is, no pics it didn't happen, so up to now you haven't actually done any woodworking at all have you?

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

These are what are in my phone... poor quality pictures but some evidence I guess...

Plus a nice stab-through that was the result of poor hand placement.

Ha! I actually teach industrial tool safety at work (i'm a union construction worker here in the city) and I managed to commit an act of poor hand placement while cleaning out a fillister on one of those boxes. I was holding the piece in my left hand instead of being smart and using a table clamp. Ran the 3/4 chisel right into my palm, through the muscle and out the flesh again.

I ruined the workpiece with all the blood also. Really stupid.
