Hey all.

I figured I'd do as suggested and post a bit of an introduction. I'm swmnbmw - to break that down, it means I am a BMW owner from Southwest Minnesota (it has nothing to do with swimming, people have gotten that confused).

I'm not an expert in woodworking but I love working with my hands and making stuff. I did some bathroom cabinets a few years ago for the parents, some frames, and I just finished a nice shelf for my mom for the entryway.

This summer I plan to make a jewelry box for the girlfriend and also a display case for my grandpa's shotgun. Hope to learn alot here!

Welcome to The Router Forums.

A bathroom cabinet project requires a wide variety of techniques and covers a lot more of the basics than most people grapple with when they are just beginning. I dabble around with all kinds of different hands on crafts, yet don't consider myself to be an expert in any of them. Perhaps journey level in a few of the trades, and absolute hack in a few with a full mix on the middle ground would be a fair description.

Thank you for taking the time to join up and introduce yourself. This is a great place to exchange ideas and information on how to get the most out of your router!

I agree with Bill, you must have some decent skills to take on the projects you've done. Good to have you here.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
