So since I've been lurking for quite a while, I figure I may as well introduce myself :)
I'm Joe, currently working in the audiovisual world as a consultant. In my previous years (not long ago, as I'm 26), I worked for a cabinetry company, reworking the company from paper to electronic systems, so we could spend more time getting cabinets right than figuring out what someones hand written dimension was
Also did quite a bit of designing over the years, it became my primary function.
Over time, I've done various projects from making a dog bowl holder (long story) to a chess table my parents mainly use as a side table in the family room today :)
I'm also a first time (and very recent) homeowner, which means I'm effectively poor, and have crappy tools
. Most of my projects (whatever they end up being) will be for the house, since I really don't want to spend craploads of money at Ethan Allen (or similar) for something I could probably do myself. (Because I'm cheap).
Anyways... hello all
