Serious, no-nonsense Noob!

Hi...I'm new.....call me Tiz....I guess I'm required to introduce myself as a common courtesy type of thing.......I abhor the usage of smileys/emoticons so I won't reply to you if you use them......I am all business and no play......don't joke with me or, well, you don't want to know......I don't have a garage and my basement is no place for woodworking....So, I share space in my shed with my trusty lawnmower where I have my wee little tablesaw, mitre saw that isn't quite set at 90 degrees, and some hand tools. My favorite tool is the try square and I'm not sure why. I wanna be a cabinet maker. I don't have the experience cabinet makers are looking for so I've been trying to get an apprenticeship. It seems this is a tough field to get into because cabinets and furniture can be mass produced in a factory. I should know; I work in one! Pipe fitting, electrical work, Hvac, masonry, and carpentry can't be mass produced. But I found what I love to do. And that's all that matters....yep..........uh huh.......sooooo, come here often?

You can't miss Terry. I'm sure he will respond to this post soon. He's all serious too. Reminds me of a stiff, English butler, with his shiney, pointy shoes and little monicle in one eye.

I'm gonna guess your serious about cabinet making. So my 2 is start with a design, your own or one you find on the net. And, I'd recommed making something less demanding. Maybe a chest for clothes or blankets.

A mistake that is made by the novice is trying to make something that is either pretty complicated or that you need to purchase the tools to make it. Either can lead to a project that never gets done.

Keep it simple and have fun.

Let's see, you live in State College and you work in a furniture factory....hmmm...you work for Woodcraft?

I live in Pa. too. There are many shops that might want grunt people, young guys willing to do anything to work in a good shop environment. I had a job like that 100 years ago and I learned tons about woodworking and furniture. Check for small shops that need a floor sweeper- furniture stainer-lumber miller. Be willing to earn next to nothing but you can get your foot in the door and learn, learn, learn. Good luck...and lighten up big guy. Don't be so serious.
