New to this forum

I just wanted to say hi. I came across this site looking for a new forum and this seems to fit perfect. I like the format of this place and hope alot more new members come here.

I live in Atlanta right now (been here 2 months) and I have been all over the world. I just build stuff as a hobby. Because of work (Active Army) and family (wife and two kids) I do not have that much time in my shop, but I do what I can.

I spent some times on another woodworking site, I like it over ther but they are getting up in age and are rather cranky

We are all under 30, cross that out. We are all under 40, cross that out. We are all here, but very upbeat and positive. Welcome to the forum.

I missed that and I had read the thread kinda eyeballing the tool someone gave him thinking what a nice gift. And was glad he decided to hang on to it.

Go Frosty , alot of years ahead of you to learn, lucky dude. I should have had such a fun hobby/possible career path at that age...but I was hanging with the wrong crowd . Hang around here and similar places when you have time and you will get at least a decade jump on most of us.

I've always told my wife [who is WAY younger than me] that when I pass away all my tools are to be GIVEN to a young struggling woodworker....
...as far as I can tell...in Vancouver....there ain't none!!!!!! Sad really.

Being in a job where I have to write my will all the time, I think about who will get my tools if I die. I have 2 kids a 1 1/2 and a 3 year old girls. I really am thinking about putting in there that they can not sell my tools and they have to keep them. Maybe their kids would use them. I think my PM66 would hold out for my grandchildren to use. Hopefully, I can use them well into old age.

Also, I have yet to run into any younger woodworkers. I have seen younger guys want to get into "trades" jobs, but they just want money and are not really into fine woodworking. Too bad.

This thread is getting morbid...I like that. Lisa and I are too far apart to think about kids so I was hoping for a fresh young upstart to take under my wing and just show him mistakes and make HIM fix 'em!!! That'll learn him right quick!!!

Man don't worry where your tools are gonna go when you die. It's all vanity. When you die I gurantee you won't know and the people left who are tryiing to decide where to give/sell/donate them don't have a clue how temporal this first phase of eternity is.

Your tools are so EXTREMELY inconsequential in the big scheme of things so as not to even matter. How's that for morbid corndog?
