new woodworker

I just wanted to say hi to everyone. I recently stopped building old british motorcycles and am getting back in to woodworking. I will apologize ahead of time since I will be asking a lot of questions. I have recently purchased some equipment and can't wait to get started. If anyone lives near Dewitt MI please feel free to let me know as I would really like someone that may be able to help me make sure I have everything set up right. I look forward to meeting some new friends here. Thanks, Bill

Hi Lee, I am open to any offers for help. I always beleive that you should know and understand everything about a machine before using it. My wife said that she has not seen me this excited about starting something new in a long time. I have been reading all of my manuals but it is always nice to have someone show you their tricks and years of knowledge. If you would like I could send you my number so we could speak in the future. Thanks again. Bill

Welcome

Sarge,
Welcome. The british motorcycle thing caught my attention. Had a bunch of bike but never a british one. Always loved them though. Back to the woodworking, check your area and see if there are any woodworking clubs going on. If not, try and find a few guys in your area that are interested in the same kind of things and see if you can hang out with them and share ideas. Fast learning curve that way, plus its a lot of fun.

Thumbs up

Welcome and good luck with your new tools/machines!! I am a young man, but I have a lot of knowledge in all types of machines. I have knowledge in shapers, molders, curved molders, routers, dovetail work, and much much more..... I have built just about everything! I have been working with a custom shop in the Monterey Bay (CA) for seven years. I also have my own home shop set up, which I have built plenty of kitchens, etc. on the side. Most the work I do in the shop I work for, is all for multi million $ homes in Pepple Beach, Carmel, etc. I do radius man doors, cabinets, gates, furniture, just about anything you can think of thats done with wood.... If you have any questions feel free to ask me, I enjoy helping people, and sharing my knowledge, as the person I learned from, did with me. Again, have fun and always be safe..................Quality Is Priceless!!!!!! Oh yea, thats awesome you use to build bikes, I have rode dirt bikes and raced since I was 5 yrs old most recently I raced open wheel dirt cars, ....... easier on my body LOL, still love riding dirt bikes with my son though!!

A warm welcome Bill, there is a always someone ready to answer a question, or just give their opinion.

A friendly and knowledgable site.

John

Cleaning my glasses will not make me look any better.
But will make what I am looking at better!
