Newbie from GA

Hey everyone, my name is James and I've been playing around with this hobby for about a year and a half now. Spend my typical 40-50 hours a week wrenching on airplanes, but try to make an effort to spend as much time as I can in my tiny shop (10.5'x11'). I haven't really knocked out any projects I want to do, just mainly shop projects for now.

Thanks for letting me join your community!

Welcome James! If you have the time theres a few woodworking clubs in the area that will accelerate your learning curve quite a bit. Any special interests yet?

A friend if mine's father is part of the Gwinnett woodworkers association. I'll have to start asking him more questions next time I'm over at his house. No special interest yet. Just trying to get most of the shop cabinets, stands, etc. built first.

I was in Gwinnett Woodworkers for several years before we moved and the trip was enough to be a pain. They do however have a Youtube channel where they post recorded meetings and other classes. They are very good for inspiration.

Thanks for telling me about the youtube channel. I subscribed not too long ago. I like the latest videos about shop made knobs. I was just in Peachtree Woodworking Supply this afternoon to pick up some t-track and stop blocks, very nice people and store. I had to leave before I started dropping some serious money!

James welcome. I'm in So Cal but I am a big fan of Peachtree Woodworking Supply. Excellent customer service. Good luck with your new projects.

I wasn't aware of Gwinnett or Peachtree until just now. Glad I clicked your post. As a former Air Force guy, (NDI) I tip my hat to your profession. Enough about me, welcome to the site!

Welcome from a neighbor just up the road from you. Glad to have you with us. I too love Peach State Lumber, good materials, prices and service.

Welcome from a former resident of Forest Park. That was in the mid 60s. Couldn't handle the traffic now.
