Hello all,

I'll keep this short and sweet!

I've been seriously interested in woodworking for the last couple of years, making small things here and there with no real tools to speck of. However, I finally got my first table saw and an old bandsaw (bandsaw is currently in-op though) so I feel like the doors are finally beginning to open up.
I don't really have a specialty or anything at the moment, I'm a mechanical engineer in my day job so I just really enjoy making/fixing things!

You are very near me. I'm in Garland. As a ME, we will naturally expect great things from you.
Welcome to our forum.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Welcome here to this friendly WW forum, where there is always room for one more, and you choose how to make your sawdust. Consider reading some books/magazines on different aspects of WW to find your niche - & get the best tools/material for the project. Enjoy your stay, and be safe.

Welcome from Atlanta, GA! We were Texans (Godley) for a while, but moved to the big city!
