Hello to all,

I am a new member and an amateur wood worker. I read somewhere that if you own a jointer and a thickness planer, you were a serious wood worker. I don't know about the serious part, but I do own a jointer and thickness planer. I would like to do a lot more wood working than I currently do.

I got into wood working kind of by accident. I turned my carport into a garage. The carport had vertical 1 x 6 side boards set on a diagonal that had to be removed so the garage walls could be framed. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that all of the boards were redwood (sweet), so I stacked them in a corner instead of throwing them away. My wife wanted some flower planter boxes for the top of the back porch rail. After buying some kind of expensive pressure treated pine planers from a local garden shop, I got the idea that I could make them better than the store bought planters and with a better quality wood that I already had. So, I made my wife 3 planter boxes with my recycled redwood boards from my previous carport. Well, that's how I got my start in wood working.

Greetings (your name here) and welcome to the router forum, sounds serious enough to me.
