new poster here
as you might have guessed i am new to this wonderful community, and am excited to be joining in on all the fun. my name is Stephen i go by Step or Stepper. i am 27 yo and have been interested in wood working since i was a teen, however i never really got into it till much later. i have been working as a carpenter in MA since i graduated back in 01, then in 07 i moved to Albuquerque where i got a job as a cabinet maker about 3 years later a got laid off due to a sucky economy and i came back to MA doing carpentry again.
part of the reason for me joining today is due to my wife and i just bought a house and for the last 3 weeks have been working on it relentlessly night and weekends.... we are now mostly comfortable but i now have a list of projects to do, i am both wicked excited and overwhelmed considering i work 2 jobs lol
anyways a couple of the projects i have planned are kitchen counter tops, a built in corner computer desk, a bed frame with drawers and head board, and a laundry room / walk in closet.... those are the big ones that i would like to start getting to one at a time.
so i am looking forward to getting to know everyone and get tips and tricks from all you pros out there. in the mean time i will get busy posting projects, pictures, designs, and progress!!!!
