New member here.

I'm glad to join this group of informative people. I have perused this site many times and finally decided to join. I have dabbled in woodworking on many occasions but have never really had the equipment I wanted. I grew up helping my father with decks, fences etc and wound up undertaking projects of my own when I remodeled a few homes.

I am now set on establishing a nice shop in which I can experiment with projects of all sorts. I look forward to sharing info here.

JJ

Welcome to the madhouse.

I am the only sane person here.

If you have any extra money you should
send it to me.



How big is your shop going to be?

Not certain of the dimensions of my shop. It's roughly 1/2 of an oversize 2 car garage. At the moment it is full of odds and ends as wel finish up a remodel on the living room. (Will post some shots) Very limited space though because of shelving and cabinets that are in there already. It will take some planning to fit everything and keep space for one car.

As far as tolls go. I have a Ryobi portable table saw mounted on a cabinet there. Picked that up years ago and will replace with larger size soon. Way too small for anything but the smallest jobs or ripping. I have a nice Rigid coumpund miter saw on the stand. Various other tools both mechanics as well as woodworking. I need other things thoug as well. Would love a drill press. I have a little hand planner but it is unwieldy to use.

I need much practice. I love that show us your shop thread. I would post pics but you couldn't see my space.

Your Monkey,
Welcome to the forum. Hope you enjoy it here. Just curious, what does the 'my monkey' mean?

firehawkmph,

Well, there is a story behind that one. I used to be involved in Remote Controlled gas powered cars. My wife's cousin and I would race them locally and run them up and down the street etc. Early on in that hobby I had one with a small .15 motor that was difficult to start. This was in 2000 I think and it used a pull start.

Imagine a bigger guy (6 feet 230) sitting on the curb pulling that pullstart over and over again. Friend of mine who is now a Doctor yelled "Hey, quit pullin on your monkey." After that every hobby I dive into is called MyMonkey. We even had a MyMonkey racing team with drivers all over.

Was fun, but the name stuck. I use it in all forums to date.
