New to the site

Hey guys,

I'm Richard and I'm new to the site, but not to woodworking. I'm 31 years old and live near Little Rock, AR. My dad is a carpenter and I've been around woodworking all of my life.

I finished college a few years back and my degree's are all in chemistry. I currently work for a company as their chemical sourcing manager. With my job, I have to travel a couple of weeks a month, so my "shop time" has been limited lately.

In the past couple of years, I've been able to amass a few more woodworking tools and have taken on larger projects. I built all of the cabinets in our house a while back. They are all curly maple. It was quite the learning experience as I'd never built cabinets before. However, they turned out better than I expected. I built all of my own doors and dovetail drawer boxes as well.

I"m currently working on a baby bed for the new arrival we're expecting in June. I'm using a rough set of plans that I purchased online and modifying where I see fit. I am building the crib out of rift and quartered white oak. It's been a fun project so far, and has been a nice opportunity to use my new mortiser.

I'm looking forward to sharing photo's of my work, getting new ideas, and seeing what everyone else is working on.
