Talking Noob from Jersey.

Hello, im Uri. Live in Central New Jersey. Always been a huge fan of wood working, never really got around to get serious until now when I am 36 with wife and two kids :)

I am pretty handy but on a amateur level, have built things out of wood but again, you can easily tell they were not done professionally from a quite a distance :) But still enjoyed building it and they still do serve their purpose.

From all my wood working experience learned few things such as - gotta have right tools to do the right job;
you can never have too much experience;
after years of dreaming about becoming a wood worker, i still havent gave up on my dream :)

Mainly i like furniture and cabinet making, ideally would live to make some friends here on the web and locally to hang out, pick some brains, learn something from professionals.

Thank you for reading this,

Uri the noob.

Welcome to the forum, Uri. You'll find this is a great place to hang out and read/write about woodworking.
