Default Hello There...First Timer Here.

Hello...

Except for minor wood assembly (computer desks, that type thing) and early wood projects (Wood-Shop Class) I'm new to woodworking. But I've always loved everything that can be done with wood.

Since I have some time on my hands, now that I'm retired, I wanted to try my hand at creating some Wall Art pieces. I've seen some examples on various sites that are just mind-blowing that I'm excited to build.

Except for a circular saw, I've not been expose to Power Tools at all...(Shop Class in High School and most of that info's been forgotten). So that will be my major learning challenge, at this stage. Safety is my number one priority. I need to go super slow when doing physical things, so that may help me.

Although I use the name "Star Traveler" for most all of the sites I'm a member of, my name is Joseph.

The Router will be one of my most used tools, I expect, for the type of Artwork I have in mind to do.

I'm looking forward to being here and I have a feeling that I may very possibly set some sort of a "record" for dumb questions, so please bare with me.

I really need you guys and, this Forum!

Thanks!

...Joseph

Hi John!
Thank you for your kind "Welcome"! I do not join many of these, and those that I have joined just don't live up to the hype I got at first. I hope to be around long enough to complete some of the wood projects I have in my head and get to know you all better.
Thanks Again, John!
