thought i'd never enjoy woodworking

but now I probably eat more sawdust than I do food and love every bit of it.

I thought it was going to be a bummer when my boss told me that I needed to switch my major at the local community college from drafting/computer aided design (which I enjoy) to cabinetry and carpentry to become eligible for a training program at my former workplace (currently laid off).

Since day 1 of class, I've hungered for more knowledge in woodworking. From deep research via Google, I was lucky to find this place and I'm very impressed by the high volume of very talented woodworkers here. I hope to learn and share with you guys.

Thanks for having me.

Welcome Tom. If you're looking for knowledge and basic "Tom"-foolery, you have come to the right place. Browse around, ask some questions, post some of your work but most of all, have fun. Glad to have you with us.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
