Sethiele introduction

Hello everyone, I am sethiele.

I found this forums looking for one on google. I currently serve in the Iowa Army Nationalguard and am deployed to Afghanistan. I am 22 years old and I took wood shop my sophmore and junior year in highschool. I fell inlove with it right away, building thing that benefit me and knowing they are quality, the satisfaction when you complete a project is great. In wood shop i built a small book shelf, basically its a tall nighstand, a coffee table, and a computer desk, everything i made was pretty good quality for being new to it all.

I havent been able to work with any type of wood since my junior year (they wouldnt let me take wood shop a third time, i somehow snuck in the second year, i think the teacher had something to do with me staying in.) For christmas i was lucky enough to go home and my fiance gave me some router letter stencils. We are gtting our own place when i come home and decided to build my own computer desk for the house, and some other projects so i decided to come here and get some ideas, and ask for opinions

i love being able to make my own blue prints and go off them, im going to look at the desks for some ideas, i asked a quick question and was surprised to see how fast the answer was posted. very very nice and helpful forums. I just have to find all the tools i need to borrow temporarily, i forgot a lot of the names to havent seen them in a long time, alot of which i dont think many of my dad's friends wont have so i may give my old shop teacher a call to see if i can come in and use some of those tools

Welcome

Hi sethiele! I'm not a great woodworker, but I am a functional tool guy. I appreciate your service, and if I can be of any help, don't hesitate to ask.
