Howdy! Hi Thank you for the greeting! Town Lake, which was renamed to Lady Bird Lake couple of years ago, runs right through middle of town...actually, it's the Colorado River. My brother lives in Katy. He loves it! I reposted my into with more detail...just so you get to know my non-knowledge! lol
Trying this again...I'm Green. Not Green as is "good for the environment" green, although I do recycle, but green as in the old sense, I KNOW NUTH'N about wood working! I sew. I make clothing & costumes. I have a sewing room with all the accessories and goodies one with a hobby can accumulate over years in their hobby! My sewing/cutting table is too low. I want a 38" table, at least. I have dealt with my last sore back & neck due to bending and stooping over a sewing project for last time...I hope! I asked a couple of my capable gentlemen friends to make the table, but they didn't want to take on the project. So, I decided, since I can take a piece of fabric and shape it to fit curves and angles (wait, one might assume I have curves....let's just leave that alone...a TMI moment), I had a surge of ambition that I could take wood and meet up angles and straight edges and fasten for my desired objective! I discovered plans for a workbench off of plansnow.com and downloaded them. I found a router on craigslist today. Naturally, I went and bought bits, a circular saw, marking pencils...and other "essential" stuff I thought I would need...perhaps not, but my ambition took over my check book. I came home and "played" with the router on some scap wood (then I went online to download a manual). Still don't know what I'm doing, but I gave it a looksie!
Then I found this forum! I hope to use as a resourse in my quest to learn Rest assured, I will read and try and learn what I can on my own...but I hope ya'll won't find my questions to bothersome, however elementary they may seem. Remember...I'm Green!
