New new guy, Albany NY area
Well WOW, I can't believe it, a woodworking forum that has some real activity. What a great place, I'm very excited.
I'm a paramedic from near Albany, NY. At the moment I want to get my feet wet with some projects I've really been looking forward to. Around the start of summer I'll be moving into my first home and anticipate a desire to really put some work into it.
Anyways, I'm completely new with woodworking... But I have the funds and the drive to make it happen, so I'm here in hopes of finding some coaching from everything to what tools I'll need through to start and completion of some projects I've wanted to work on for a while now.
In particular, my abilities with Google Sketchup currently far outpace my ability to create what I Sketch. I've designed, what seems to me to be, a rather elaborate stand for a saltwater aquarium I have on order and would like some tips in building it. More like ALL the tips for building it heh. I have done a fair bit of research and I believe the blueprints to be of sound construction but beyond that, I'm pretty well lost.
Anyways, I'll be making a thread based around this in the very near future and any help would be appreciated.
Oh, and Hi from New York, can't wait to get started!
