Talking Sayin' Hello.

I'm a military man, married 7 years and have a 5 year old son. I'm fairly experienced in brick/block/stone/tile (dad was a 30-year journeyman and I was raised in the business). And I'm a jack off all trades on the rest, but am now finally getting orders to a place where I can settle down for a number of years so I decided to advance my knowledge by taking up more advanced woodworking. This site seems like a wealth of knowledge to tap.

I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with all of the jargon being thrown around, but I'm glad that I have about 75,000 members on this site to help me through it.

This seems like a great place to learn!

Frye

welcome....congrats on reaching the point were you feel you are ready to go on to the next phase, and thank you for your service. are you still in the military? we wouldn't be able to enjoy our hobbies and our work without your service. i don't know alot about most subjects here, but i like to do stuff (its therapeutic!) and want to do far more projects than i'll ever be able to accomplish! My brother was a col in AF...he often had access to a wood shop at the bases ....he made us each a beautiful wall clock about 25 years ago while in virginia. anyway, if you post whatever your project is, maybe how you are planning to do it or just stating you don't know something, often within a day you will ahve multiple responses of ways others have done. sometimes the responses are right on, sometimes they offer another angle (out-of-the-box views can be very helpful) and often the members here will back-up their suggestions by letting you know their experience. this is a great reference resource! another great latent aspect to this site is reading others posts and learning from their questions/answers. when you can, post a picture so things can be clearer. take before and afters! (we luv pics...) good luck and welcome to wwtalk!

Thanks for the warm welcome. I am still actually in the service, 8 years and running, so it's been tough for me to put together the time or space to do any shop work at all. I've still managed to keep my masonry and tile skills sharp along the way by doing side work though.

I will be all about asking questions and first, trying to figure out the jargon I've seen thrown around on here. Got lots of instructors and experience here so I'll be taking advantage of that.

I'm getting ready to move right now, so I won't be able to touch a tool until June. I'll be posting pics of wood projects at that time as well as before/after pictures of remodelling spaces in the house I just bought in Omaha, NE. These, since they will combine skills that I have mastered along with new woodworking skills that I intend to master will be my pride and joy.

Thanks again for the warm welcome.

jargon

don't worry about the right terms.....everyone here is of varying levels of experience...those that don't know jack and those who he was taught by ! Although, sometimes when you have a question it gets difficult to ask without some terminolgy. in those cases if i don't know..i google and usually find a term so that i can ASk my question better. good luck with the move.................julie
