Howdy from Kentucky!

Howdy folks!

As my post count would indicate, I'm VERY new here. Never even been a lurker. I found the site via a google search. Looks like a great place to hang out!

I'm a 3rd generation carpenter. Dad started me out setting nails and cleaning up on job sites when I was 8 or 9. By the time I graduated high school, I'd already accumulated more "on the job" experience than most guys 7 or 8 years older than me. That helped get my foot in the door. I always had a knack for doing trim work. A good eye and a love for doing fine work was all the motivation I needed. Over the past 40 years, I've done trim work in homes, business's, boat cabins, churches, and a host of other venues. I love a challenge. Tell me I can't do something and consider it DONE!

Dad believed in learning to do things "old school" before you picked up all the power tools. I still love doing things without power tools.

A few years ago, I got a lucky break when the old rockpile of a small farm I owned was bought by a developer and I suddenly found myself with the opportunity and expendable cash to build and equip a shop at our new place. Now my day job is also my HOBBY! I'm starting to build furniture in my spare time. (Starting with a bedroom suit)

So.... The newfound interest in my old way of life has led me to the computer. I was searching for a site where people who love filling their pockets with sawdust would be found. Looks like I'm there!

I'm hoping to learn a few new tricks as well as HOPEFULLY passing on anything worthwhile I know.


Thanks for your time,

Bill
