Default Hello from Florida

Hi folks, just stopping by to introduce myself.

My name is John and I'll be retiring from the Sheriff's Office on June 29th, after a little over 26 years. My mind says I can still do the job, but the body doesn't agree.

I have been wanting to get into wood working and am in the process of setting up a small shop in the single car section of our 3 car garage.

I hope to build guitars, electric at first, as well as maybe get into pen turning, gun stocks and grips and anything else I can come up with.

I'm a rookie at wood working, so I'm sure I'll have lots of questions for all you experienced folks. It's looks like I have stumbled upon a treasure trove of information here, and I can't wait to start reading the forums and getting ideas on things.

So, nice to meet ya'll, I'll be seeing you around.

Welcome John! Another Floridian here, living in paradise (SW Florida). Building guitars is very challenging, so don't get too frustrated as you're building your skills. It's not something I've ever tried myself, but some day... There are others on this forum that have built guitars, so I'm sure you'll get some good advice.
