My name is Ed, but my friends call me Special Ed for various reasons - none bad. However, I do have a tendency to ask alot of questions - occupational hazard.
I live in the high desert of California outside Los Angeles.
I'm pretty new to woodwork overall and have only been working with wood for a couple years now, but its a rarity that I can actually do any woodwork due to the wife's penchant for filling my garage/woodshop with Teacher stuff or it's to freaking hot or cold in there. I do mostly small stuff, but have plans to go extreme here soon and build kitchen cabinets (with wife's thrilled approval) and have been collecting tools for the last couple years. ("Honey, I need this tool to do _______ for the kitchen cabinets.")
I've redesigned my shop on SketchUp and am in the process of putting together the dust collection system. Which, brought me to this site.
Judging from the post already, it looks like an active forum with productive and encouraging replies. I also hope to be able to add my two cents worth, but am probably gonna be disproportionately sucking on a few brains at first.
(Note to Moderator or Admin - You might want to add a Dust Collection Topic Area) Someone may have already answered my question and it's kinda tough to find it and I really don't know where to post it - hence the screen name.
