A new wanabe from Washington
What a wonderful place you have here. I've been lurking for a while and I have posted a few times so I guess it's time to introduce myself. I live just outside Seattle with my wife of 37 years. I've been a lot of things over my life time and for the last 27 years I've worked as a mechanic working mainly on fire department vehicles.
I'm close to retirement so the chance to really get into working with wood gets to be more of a reality. I'm by no means any good at the craft but I do try. Back in high school I took wood shop for 4 years, built a couple of coffee tables, a cedar chest, which I still have, plus other things, and I haven't really done much since. It's time I got back into it and this place really helps with the knowledge and excitement to do just that.
