Default First Post on Router

Hello everyone,
I am a retired Navy Sonar Tech that served on the USS McCandless. Some of my gunners-mate buddies told me about the site so I wanted to check it out for myself.
I am retired now and have been doing woodwork almost all my life.
I am not a pro, I'm just a DIY kinda guy about most things.
Do most all my own mechanic work, fiberglass, woodworking etc.
Biggest job I guess was building my own house.
Hope to build a large woodworking shop in the spring for all my tools if things workout.
Hope this will be a good forum for info and camaraderie.

All the best,

G'Day & Welcome "Sparky" from an Aussie sailor [ex-RAN engineering] who also loves woodwork, especially toymaking.
I'm slowly finding my way around the forum; good bunch of helpful blokes.
Enjoy your retirement.
Enjoy the forum.
Cheers, crowie
