New - From Atlanta

I have been reading this forum for a few weeks now and finally decided to join so I can introduce myself.

I am a Storage Solutions Architect (i.e. - computer storage guy). Good thing about my job is I work from home most of the time. We just moved into a new house this past fall and now my shop (just a basic TS, router and planer so far) and office are both in the basement. So as I sit typing this message (got a few minutes before my next conference call) ... I can see my shop on the other side... calling me... beckoning for my attention. Alas I must wait til the work that pays the bills is done before I go to visit that side of the basement. Right now I am working on closing off the shop area to keep the dust in a controlled environment.

I live just south of Atlanta and am learning as much as I can. Videos and how-to posts on the internet are my only training. One good thing.. I have a friend who runs a small mill. I trade my computer skills to support them and trade for as much wood as I want. For the most part, I take the roughcut hardwood scraps and older pine boards that they need to clear out. Mostly I get some good wood out of it for smaller projects and the rest goes into the fireplace or burn pile. If I build anything larger in the future, I will pay them for it. But the scraps and other stuff really are making the learning curve less expensive.

So if anyone near Atlanta needs some computer support in trade for being my woodworking coach or maybe some decent tools, let me know.
