Welcome to the forum, Kev! Or is it Kevin?

We do like photos so show us your shop, tools, projects, etc. whenever you're ready. What sort of woodworking are you planning or doing?

Thanks for the welcome. Right now I am working on a plaque/bat holder for my daughter. She play college softball and has a wooden bat that has some of her favorite sayings on it. Her school colors are purple and gold. So I jointed a couple of pieces of Purple Heart. Yesterday laminated some Paudak and PH together. I am going to cut it in two and make the ‘holders’ with those. My next door neighbor is a professional artist and she is going to pain her school logo and mascot along with outline of Nashville (where she goes to school).

still working on my French cleat system and such.

i was going to post a pic of PH & Paduak but I can’t attach from ipad

Someone asked about my shop. Well it is a garage and I roll everything out to drive way. Still need to build stand for drill press and miter saw. Have flip stand for ridge oscillating sander and planer, rolling stand for DeWalt table saw. Still working on my French cleat system.

Can't wait to see it finished, looks like a good project and wood combo.

================================================== ====
Here are some photo posting tips if you’re taking photos with your phone or iPad – the best way for proper orientation is to shoot landscape (widescreen). Rotate your phone or iPad CCW for proper orientation. If you want your photos to be portrait then open the photo in a viewer on your computer, rotate it to the orientation you want, then save it in that orientation. It will be correct when you upload it to the servers here. If you’re shooting video please shoot widescreen like our monitors, not portrait.

The best way to post photos in line with your text is to use Go Advanced below the Quick Reply window. If you’re starting a new thread then you’re automatically in the Advanced editor. Click on the Paper Clip on the ribbon bar and that will bring up a dialogue box where you can browse to your photos. Upload them and then put your cursor where you want a photo, hit the dropdown beside the Paper Clip, and choose the photo you want inserted. If you have several photos and just want them at the end of your text then put your cursor at the end and hit the Insert All on the dropdown list of photos.

Always post a photo rather than a link; most folks won't click on a link.

Welcome to the forum.

I spent a week at the city dock behind the Aquariums on my way up to Knoxville and another week on my way back down river. Cant say enough about what a great place it is.

I met a man through a boating forum while in Chatt. Cant remember his name but he was a city planner I believe. We walked downtown and he was giving me a historical tour of the old downtown including the waterfront.

Now back to woodworking..............looking forward to seeing your finished products with my two favorite woods.

One of the reasons I like Chattanooga is the history. Did he point out that the streets that /you were on where the second story and you can still see the top of the first floor windows.

Thx for the welcome.

Yes, I forgot all about that. We walked for at least an hour or so.

I also remember when my SO and I were walking on a walking bridge with a glass floor. There was a few older couples walking in front of us and one man was freaking out. Thought he was going to have his legs give out. The others were trying to calm him down. It was kind of weird on that bridge but we liked it. Guess it isn't for everyone. LOL
We really liked the Aquariums. Very impressive.
