New from Texas

Hey guys! My name is Becka and I honestly have never tried woodworking. I have found a few beginner classes in my area and I can't wait to get started! Any advice I can get from experienced crafters would be greatly appreciated! Also just out of curiosity, are there any other ladies here??

Thanks guys and I hope to have some projects to be proud of in the near future!

+1 on the firemedic guy

Seriously tho welcome. Wherebouts in TX. Im in Houston. Where are the classes you found? schools or woodcraft or?

There are a few ladies here, and most of the work these guys do they are ordered to do so by a lady.

I am in Kyle just south of Austin, but I am originally from SW Houston. The classes I found are at Woodcraft, but if you know of any others please let me know! Thanks!

I drove right by Kyle last week (on 35) while in New Braunfels. Had to go to Austin for a quick trip.

Not sure of your age (and Im not asking either..thats rude), but you may look into some of the schools-colleges up there. I havent taken any woodcraft classes, but Im sure they are good.

Ha not shy about my age. I am 26. I looked into some classes at ACC, problem is my work schedule is pretty unpredictable so I really can't commit to a course that lasts several weeks. I'm mainly looking for a class that will let me get my feet wet then go from there. My uncle has been woodworking for years and has offered to let me use his shop and knowledge so I am stoked about that! Might even drive down to his place tomorrow and get started!

Beck, new to the forum also. I have been taking classes at woodcraft and the guys and gals at the Dallas location are great. It looks like the Austin location offers some great classes as well. A really good place to get started. Best of luck.
