Smile Just a Short Introduction

Hi I was looking around the web and found this cool forum that is all about woodworking and especially routers and I thought how cool is that!

I am a Vet as you might know from my user name, lol and love wood working of all kinds.

I am currently working on building my own home and am interested in all sorts of fun tools that will help me to make that easier. Fortunately I have most of my Dad's tools to help with the work, otherwise I don't think I would even have started.

Anyway I look forward to checking out all of the wonderful helpful posts.
Kay.

Looking forward to your participation.
Filling out your profile to include (first name,tools and short bio is strictly (optional )but does help members to better relate to each other.
Thank You John

Thanks!

I have been around woodworking all of my life as a carpenters daughter, but in the last few years I have tried to learn as much as I could about turning, but have just only scratched the surface. Even familiar tools are learning new tricks these days.

Hi Kay. I like the debt free house idea.

Hi, Kay; welcome! That's a hugely ambitious project. My hat's off to you. Do you have help on the site?
Work smart, Kay; it's just way too easy to get hurt moving heavy lumber by yourself. You want to have all your toes, fingers, and a working spine when it's all done.

Welcome to the forum Kay. I did the build as you can route and only have a few finishing touches to go. It is a very rewarding way to go in more ways than one but requires a lot of patience.

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.
