Default Hello, fellow wood workers!

I'm new to this site, not particularly new to wood-working but well aware that I still have a lot to learn. I am mainly interested in building furniture such as tables, chairs, and other useful items such as wine racks, jewelry boxes, bookcases (especially bookcases - I have more books than I know what do to with, other than build another bookcase). I am also intersted in learning to build puzzle boxes. I've turning a little turning on a Jet mini-lathe and now have a fair number of bowls and wine bottle stoppers.

I'm looking to gain some snense of mastery using the Incra LS router fence, and improving my skills with the table saw, jointer, band saw and router. Any and all suggestions are gratefully appreciated.

Thanks!

Rick

Welcome to Router Forums, Glad that you joined us. There is a lot of information on routers and woodworking, And for the home craftsman the router does a great job doing many jobs. We have turners also, so you should have some good reading material. There are more people here from Texas. If you can tel as where in Texas and what age bracket, you may have a new friend to work with. Enjoy.

Hi Howard!

Or perhaps I should say "Howdy!" Thanks for the warm welcome. I live in the DFW area - North Richland Hills, to be exact. I'm looking forward to making new contacts in the North Texas (although by no means limited to just that area). But sometimes it is easy to talk through a wood working problem face to face.

Thanks again!

Rick

Greetings Rick, welcome to the forum. It is good to have you join us; we are always looking for fellow woodworkers. As you can see, I am living in Dallas, but not Texas, Georgia instead. I did live for 17 years in Katy Tx. west of Houston. My youngest son still lives in Houston and will be getting married in Galveston on June 26th.
