New here and to woodworking
Hello everyone. Names Rod, currently residing in Eastern Washington State. Recently purchased a router with multiple bases and a 12" surface planer. I have always been the metal worker in the family, with my dad and brother working the wood. They have made some very nice pieces lately so the wife told me I had to start doing the same, the metal furniture doesn't have the same appeal I guess.
I am a semi-retired, stay at home dad. I am currently doing some schooling to pursue a medical field job. My wife is a dentist so my first priority is our two children.
I have access to a table saw from a neighbor, and have a garage full of hand and electric tools, drills, worm drive saw, etc. etc.
I am currently rebuilding a truck camper, which led me here, and I have always wanted to do cabinet work. I am planning to reclaim some oak from old pallets to redo much of the interior in my camper. If that works out I will redo my motorcycle hauling trailer with real cabinets instead of Costco wire racks, then I will do some shelf cabinets for the inside of the house.
I have many other interests, motorcycle racing, flying, metal craft, etc. I am also a volunteer firefighter in my area and an EMT.
