Pleased to meet you....
My name is Earl, and i'm in Northern Indiana, USA. I've done a number of home improvement/mainenance projects over the past 30 years--but when my wife wanted to hire someone to build a cabinet/bookcase last winter, i started tinkering.
I manage group medical accounts for a living, volunteer on my township fire department and county's haz-mat response team. For kicks, i get to spend several weekends a summer as a motorsports rescue worker--an unusual part-time job.
With the help of Craigslist and the auction site, i have managed to acquire a nice collection of tools--and learned enough to know there is a difference between owning, using and mastering each one. Have made a few boxes, the bookcase my wife wanted, rehabbed a shed and built a few tool stands in the past several months. I log into the BT3Central forum about daily, and i've been reading here off and on since December. Finally getting ready to build up a decent router table--so i'll be a little more regular.
Thanks for your help.
