Hello! I'm Bill, and I'm pretty darn new to the whole woodworking scene (does it have a "Scene"? I guess that sounded silly). I started with a woodworking company in the shipping department, and I am starting to become interested in the idea of creating things that last. Not just last, like a bad lasagna in the fridge that I havent worked up the courage to eat or let the cat play with, I mean, last. Last and have a purpose. Or, at least, be very impressive to look at (unlike that lasagna, again). A friend of mine was quite interested in older woodworking techniques, pre-powertools and all that, and that stuck in my brain a bit. Now, working in a shipping department for a woodworking company, I'd like to learn more. I'll be lurking a lot, hope thats ok. When I have something intelligent to add (like, perhaps, how NOT to cook a lasagna), I'll chime in. Thanks, and have a good one!
