New to the site and hello from So Cal

Found this site via google and started reading from everyone. I grew up on Southeastern Wisc. Now live in so ca for the past 20 yrs. Much nicer weather but miss the lakes. I recently started woodworking projects in my garage shop after many years of just construction work. I spent 2 weeks in Montana learning how to build a Sam Maloof style rocking chair. I had a great teacher and now have the knowledge to build them on my own. Hench the need for more tools! Hi to all.

Trident,
Welcome to the forum. I am also from So CA. I was originally from the Midwest also. (NE) 37 year transplant. I am also a new member and have been amazed at the knowledge and advice you can get from people here. I also find the tool reviews very helpful when making decisions on new tool purchases. The DIY forum link at the top is also worth checking out. Again Welcome and enjoy!

Not to hijack this thread, but you said you're originally from Nebraska?

That's where I'm from originally - up in the panhandle, Sheridan county.

Toddj99,
Also not wanting to hijack this thread but wanted to reply. I was from Antelope County and now have a vacation home on the Missouri River near Lynch NE. in Boyd County I have a lot of woodworking projects that I want to do their when I get totally retired. I have a lot of family in North Eastern NE mostly Holt County. I left NE when I joined the military in 1972 and my wife and I have enjoyed the CA sunshine ever since. We do miss the simple life of NE though but don't miss the winters. Really enjoy our vacation home and the slower pace. Nice to meet you!
