Default Long time lurker

I’ve been lurking around the forum for a while and figured it was about time I signed up. Most of my “construction” experience is with metal framing and rough carpentry, but I’d like to hone some finer woodworking skills and maybe build some things I can hand down to my kids. Looking forward to learning and sharing.

Welcome to the forum, Dave! Add your first name to your profile to clear the N/a in the side panel. Add your location, as well.

What sort of woodworking are you doing or planning? What tools do you have? We like photos of shops, tools, projects, etc. so post whenever you're ready. And ask questions when you have them!

Hi Dave and welcome. Our members have a wide range of skills so we can usually help you with what you want to do.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Hi Dave, glad you decided to join the fun. A tool list is a really good idea so we have an idea what you can take on as a project. For me, making a bookshelf, cabinet or a stand for tools is the perfect early project. What you'll learn from such projects will teach you skills you'll be using for all your projects in the future. It will also tune you into the degree of precision you need for woodworking.

Most of my experience has been in building custom boxes for home and car stereo. Eventually Iíd like to build a few dressers, chests, jewelry boxes, etc... for my daughters. Itís going to be a while before I get rolling, as Iím having wrist surgery in a few weeks and will be out of commission for a while. Itíll give me time to figure out exactly what I want to do.

As for tools, I have 2 Bosch 1617EVSPK kits, a small craftsman router table, PC table saw, Milwaukee 6955 12Ē DBC miter saw, Milwaukee circular saw, and various Sanders, drills, etc... I build cars on the side so I have a garage full of mechanic tools as well.

My first ďprecisionĒ project will probably be a router table with an Incra lift and fence. Once I start on it Iíll be sure to make a thread to document the process.

Thanks for the welcome!!

Hey, Dave; welcome! Would you mind putting that tool list and bio material into your profile? The comment above
will disappear soon and the info won't be lost but it'll be really user unfriendly to dig out.
You can edit, add or remove info from your own profile at any time. The only real security concern would be stuff like your actual address or contact info, other than the PM function, ie don't put those in.
