Novice woodworker from WA
I'm a long time lurker of this forum and often reference posts when trying to learn since I'm really new to woodworking. I live about 40 miles north of Seattle and have been slowly tooling up through big box stores sales, Harbor Freight, and hand offs from friends.
Most of the work that drew me into this hobby has been home improvement projects which has kindled a desire to learn more about woodworking. My other hobbies include board and role playing games, motorcycles, and photography.
My work background is as a network engineer for a large corporation which I've been working at for approximately 17 years now.
