Yet Another New Guy
I suppose I should introduce myself before asking a bunch of newbie questions so here goes. I live in south Louisiana and recently had my kitchen completely redone. The guy who did it did a wonderful job, but was pretty slow. Took him about 2 months longer than he originally thought, so at my request, he threw in some walnut and cherry boards for me to make a couple of cutting boards with.
To make a long story short, the boards came out pretty good, in my humble opinion. The ended up costing me about what they would have had i just purchased them since I had to pick up a few minor tools to complete them. I really enjoyed making them, and since I have plenty of room in my garage for more woodworking equipment, I plan to expand my "shop". Right now, I have an old table saw, a fairly new 10" miter saw and some hand held sanders. Yes, I know, it's not much of a shop, but it's a work in progress. Hopefully there are some more knowledgeable people here who can guide me to a better shop and keep me from making some newbie mistakes.
I guess that's enough for an intro. Hi, from down south.
