Thumbs up Hi I'm a new member

Hi all, my name is Dick and while I'm new to this forum, I'm not new to woodworking. I've been dabbling in woodworking for over 20 years. I retired last year and we moved back to PA. I'm getting ready to start building my shop and am very anxious to be building projects again. I've accumulated a fair amount of hand and stationary tools over the years with the aim of having a complete shop when I retired. Recently, I started volunteering with Habitat for Humanity: I've been doing 3 days a week on a complete gut-job of a 150 year old house. The work is enjoyable and has given me a chance to give back to the community and help a deserving family.

Welcome to the community Dick.

Did the Habitat for Humanity thing for a few years a while back. Found it to be very rewarding.
Always good to see a fellow Pennsylvanian join the forum SW Pa. here..

Default PAWoodworker...Habitat for Humanity

Hello Dick,
Welcome, and kudos to you for the volunteer work at Habitat. It's a great organization.
My daughter had volunteered for years and now has just recently been hired as a
Construction Site Manager. She has a background in Architecture and had always wanted to get hands on. She's thrilled, of course.
