Newbie From Kansas

Hello everyone. My name is Rob and am from Central Kansas. Have always been into woodworking since growing up watching my Papa do his woodworking and making our yearly visit to Silver Dollar City as a kid. Have finally gotten a shop to work in since graduating from college and just bought our first house. Working as biologist for a few years, but had to work with my hands more. So now am loving my career as a diesel mechanic. I absolutely love hunting and fishing, when not spending time woodworking. I am really looking forward to learning as much as possible from the site and have already learned much just from lurking. Well, just thought I'd introduce myself and hope everyone has a good one!!

Welcome to the forum.

From biologist to mechanic, then on to wood working. As you say you "like to use your hands" the last two will help in that department.

Now you can make saw dust with greasy hands, double the fun. :) :)

Have a great day!

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