Noob from Florida checkin' in.
I've been working on a general work bench and thought it looked pretty good, so with great pride as I check out my master piece, and with chest out, I think I'm ready to step up and get a router for other projects! After fumbling with the instructions on my new gadget, I finally assemble it and try out a tongue and groove cut. Scratching my head, I immediately realize that I have pretty much forgotten everything from shop class 20+ years ago.
Needing obvious help, Google turned up this site and here I am. My name is Terry and I'm from Lakeland Fl. I have 3/4 of a shop table *cough* under my belt and am ready to read and learn. I will warn you though, be prepared for me not to remain silent and show plenty of ignorance! Actually, I will try to keep it to a minimum. Searching through the site, I found words like dado, rabbet etc. and googling these terms seemed easy enough until I saw a guy post, and I quote: "double dado cross half lap joint". Yeah, I can barely say it.
Sorry for the long introduction, just wanted to make sure you knew you had a complete noob at the keyboard. Thanks in advance for some of the posts that I have read and will read trying to learn a thing or two.
