Hello there gentlemen (and ladies). I am Marcus
Yes it's my real name.
I joined here a while ago, haven't posted a lot and it's been a while since I've signed on here.
I'm still new and learning about woodworking. Got lots of tools thanks to craigslist, sales and Christmas last year. Made a few nick nacks here and there but nothing much to speak of. Unfortunately no pictures to show off
I have 2 goals for woodworking right now. One is my wife, 2 children (6 y/o girl, 4 y/o boy) have downsized and live in a smaller house now with little storage. I'm planning on making built-ins in one of our rooms that will cover 2 of the walls about 8' high and each wall being about 10' long. Insides will most likely be inexpensive plywood with the outsides a combination of quality plywood and finished stock. I'm hoping to get some good raised panel doors out of it
That project will wait a little while though. My first project is we want a picnic table. Found a good plan for an octagonal table and plan to make it in the coming weeks. BUT, what I plan on doing is making it and trying to sell it through websites and local papers to make a profit. See how it goes.........there's no telling. I'm hoping the hobby will be beneficial to me and my family.
Anyway, in short, hello to all of you! Amazing the wealth of information on this site!
