Been reading the forum for a couple of weeks and a member for a bit less than that. Thought I had better post a hello in here since I kind of skipped that part and jumped right into a couple of different threads.
44, married, retired/disabled, just starting to really get into making things with wood because we need extra storage and She prefers it behind doors.
Just got a new craftsman table saw to replace my 10 or more year old, rarely used Menard's Pro-tech table saw.
Also got a Ryobi router/table combo but am going to be making my own router table soon as the t-track finally arrived last night.
Don't have much of a clue as to what I am doing, not very handy but read a lot and watch a lot of diy shows...so qualified to tell people "I saw (or read about) them doing it this way and it looked super easy."
Tons of other misc tools as that seems to be what a guy gets for gifts plus I seem to have the normal guy fascination with tools even if I don't know how to use them.
Did just almost finish my first real project besides making a tub surround years ago that got modified a lot by my father-in-law once he saw it. Just a small cabinet that needs the doors made and put on yet. It is staying unfinished as it isn't something I want to put that kind of money or effort into as it is only a cabinet for me to keep misc tools inside the house during the cold months. If I ever get good enough to make anything that will make it upstairs I will get into finishing with stain and such products.
If all worked right I should have a pic of the cabinet under here. It looks lopsided in the picture but I think that must be Her picture taking, not my putting it together as the pieces on both sides are the same measurement (triple-triple-tripled checked).
