Default Love the wood

This is my first post here, so I thought this would be an appropriate place to start.

I'm a doctor by day (general and trauma surgery) and an avid (yet novice) woodworker by night. I never took any woodworking classes, never took "shop" in high school, so everything I know I've learned from Norm and David Marks. I started making sawdust about 18 months ago, and I love it. I've recently completed a 5-drawer chest and a cherry desk for my wife.

I'm looking forward to getting (and maybe giving?) advice.

Welcome to the community of woodworkers Adam.

the "Doctor"

In woodworking there is no scrap, only firewood.

I just applied some stain to the dresser yesterday and hopefully I will stain the desk tonight. Then I have to wait a few days for the dust to settle in my garage, er, workshop, before starting on the poly. I'll post some pics once the dust settles...literally.
