Red face New Kid on the Block

Hi all!

Was really glad to find the forums here. I hope to learn a lot. I've played around with woodworking since I was a kid, but just the simple sort of stuff you get to do in scouts and summer camp. I'm a geography professor, so not as much chance to work with my hands at work as I would like. My grandpa was a master carpenter though, and I've always wanted to do stuff like he did. I've mostly done really simple stuff - step stools, easy accent tables, sawhorses, and that kind of thing. It's been a lot of fun to learn, but I think every kid who ever took a wood shop class probably knows more than I do. Still, there's youtube, and forums like this one, so I'll keep on trucking and build up some more skills now that I have the chance. Thanks for having be aboard!

Welcome to the forum. One of my best college classes was Economic Geography. Very interesting as I had a great professor.
