Phoenix NewBee

Hi, my name is Michael, from Phoenix, AZ and I'm stuck at work all day on my birthday! I came across this site while looking for a new hobby to get into.
I would classify myself as a novice, but I have built a number sets for theater productions. (everything looks good from 20' away!)
Just kidding...I always take pride in everything i've done.
I made a good general purpose workbench, and a shelving unit about 3 months ago. My latest project is a small Gullows Hellcat plane converted to RC. I am working my way up to an awesome looking pergola, and beautiful furniture eventually. A little bit of everything!

welcome to the forum

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Up until I started into woodworking I had no real reason to praise AZ (having lived there 15 years), but now I see all of its benefits:

1) No rusting anything!

2) Wood is basically kiln dried as soon as the tree hits the ground.


And ya, that's about it. Of course, theres also cheap, good mexican food 24 hours a day. I do miss breakfast burritos....

Welcome to the forums, you'll find a complete bevy of knowledge and helpful folks here.

OH yeah!
Added 6" to my waistline. I'm sure.
Not to mention the powdered sugar and honey covered Indian fry bread and Navajo Tacos.
