Howdey for Oklahoma!!

Greetings and salutations,

I an new to forums and have never participated in one. But after lurking in the Internet shadows for a while I decide this sight was worth interacting with. I am looking forward to the exchange of ideas and learning. Thanks for an awesome sight.

"and now for something completely different"

I am a 37 year old Engineer that has recently (three years ago) gotten into woodworking as a hobby. I have decided to jump off into the deep end and build all my own cabinets for my kitchen reno. Apart from woodworking , I love cooking, hunting, fishing and reading.

And please, "call me Casey"

Welcome Casey

Woodworking should come easy to an Engineer. Building your own cabinets is a good start. Nothing but a bunch of boxes.
BTW, what kind if Engr?

Thanks for the greetings

Thanks again,
Also Tony B. I am a M.E. But I have found that most engineers like myself can get a little obsessed with the finite details. It slows me down but luckly this is from me not for profit (I would probably go broke):-]

Welcome, Casey

It's a good forum. There are a lot of really sharp cabinet guys here that can give you some pointers on those kitchen cabinets, if needed.

Another Okie here - I'm north of Tulsa in the Owasso/Collinsville area. If you're ever in the neighborhood, stop by and we'll make some sawdust. I find that I need to be more of an engineer and put more effort into the details.

Welcome Casey,
Woodworking is a great hobby, but just remember to leave the micromiters in the tool box. Most everything you will be doing can be done with a tape measure.

I went snagging this winter in Late Dec. Me and a buddy I took fishing got 10 fish in the boat that afternoon. Total Weight for the day 386 lbs of fish (in the boat; we lost 3). But the one in the photo was a 53 lbs male. The big females should be coming up soon! Grand lake is one of the best fisheries for spoonbill in the country. Or so I am told. BTW crappie are biting as well took my 6yr old boy and 7yr old girl out Saturday, even with the help I caught 50. It is going to be a good spring!!
