Thanks for the warm reception. VC, haven't overcome it yet, but working on it. And XP, there's always hope...appreciate your example ! I have what some call unique, others call freaky. 2 years ago, I dislocated my left thumb severely. It required surgery to place an implant in the cmc joint. My body rejected the implant, so another surgery took that out and replaced with one they made out of my own tendon by wrapping it into a ball around a titanium pin. All was proceeding ok, then shortly before the cast came off I contracted what is called reflex sympathetic dystrophy (rsd), now commonly called crps. Basically, due to these 3 "traumatic events", my sympathetic nervous system went haywire in my left hand/forearm. There is no known cure, but rather the hope that they can put it into remission. Basically, my left hand and forearm constantly feel on fire (actual temp. of the area is extremely elevated) and massive pain. On top of that, I have constant tremors in the hand and cannot use it to hold any tool...heck, I can't even hold a fork. I take 64 pills a day, and haven't worked in 2 years, 2 months and 8 days. Other than that, we're rockin' !
So, now that's out of the way, we can talk about my passion, wood ! Been a professional woodworker for over twenty years. I guess after 10 posts I can put up the link to my website. As I said before, I'm looking to the future, and thinking I might dabble in cnc woodwork. I love router work more than anything, and in the past on jobs I made all my own mouldings, from crown to door rails/stiles. Hopefully, I can not only learn here at this site, but contribute as well. I noticed this forum has a special needs section...hope I can really help out there.
