New from Illinois

Guys this 70+ year old has been working with Wood, most of my life. Looking forward to leaning a lot from some real woodworkers.

Hi Roger, and welcome to WoodworkingTalk!

If you are 70+ years old and have worked with wood most of your life, how much older do you have to get before you are a "real woodworker"? Something tells me that you have lots of experience to share with us learners, too! :-)

I like to see photos of other people's projects. They inspire me with ideas to try myself. I hope you post a few pictures, too.

welcome to the forum, Roger. (there are several of us here in your age group).
this is an open forum with all levels of skills and talents.
please feel free to join in the conversations that you find interesting
and ask questions to expand your skill levels and share what you know.
if you would like to know more about something, you can start a new thread.
we like to see photos of projects to share with others.
when addressing specific issues or concerns, sketches, drawings and photos
will get you the most accurate responses. (and we can all be on the same page).
when you get time, you can complete your profile through the "User CP"
with your location and whatever you want in your signature line (such as your
first name) that will show in all your posts.
looking forward to seeing some of your projects.

we would much rather see posts of: "How do I do this"
~ vs ~ "How can I FIX this" . . . .

hope you enjoy your stay.

.

there is no educational alternative to having a front row seat in the School of Hard Knocks.

Welcome to the forum, Roger! Add your location to your profile, please.

We do like photos so show us your shop, tools, projects, etc. whenever you're ready. What sort of woodworking are you planning or doing? Show us some previous projects if you're willing.

In my first thread, I tried to ad a picture and the address only shows up.

https://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f9/g...mation-222969/

Am I doing something wrong?

It’s been great, but dry. It was 75 degrees today.

Here are some photo posting tips if you’re taking photos with your phone or iPad – the best way for proper orientation is to shoot landscape (widescreen). Rotate your phone or iPad CCW for proper orientation. If you want your photos to be portrait then open the photo in a viewer on your computer, rotate it to the orientation you want, then save it in that orientation. It will be correct when you upload it to the servers here. If you’re shooting video please shoot widescreen like our monitors, not portrait.

The best way to post photos in line with your text is to use Go Advanced below the Quick Reply window. If you’re starting a new thread then you’re automatically in the Advanced editor. Click on the Paper Clip on the ribbon bar and that will bring up a dialogue box where you can browse to your photos. Upload them and then put your cursor where you want a photo, hit the dropdown beside the Paper Clip, and choose the photo you want inserted. If you have several photos and just want them at the end of your text then put your cursor at the end and hit the Insert All on the dropdown list of photos.

Always post a photo rather than a link; most folks won't click on a link.
