Drick's introduction

1670 Views 6 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  ejant
Having posted a few times, I guess I ought to introduce myself. I live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and work here as a police officer. I am also the associate pastor at a Southern Baptist Church. Linda, my wife, is the absolute greatest, truly God's gift. We have four sons, one grandson, two granddaughters, and another grandchild on the way. My primary skill as a woodworker is taking big pieces of wood and making small pieces out of them along with a large pile of sawdust and shavings. Carpenters generally measure twice and cut once. I measure nine times and cut five. Maybe I just need new glasses. I hope to be able on this forum to unravel the mystery of dovetail joints. I have been watching Router Workshop for only a few months and really appreciate Bob and Rick's skill and ability to teach.

Welcome! I got to spend 12 weeks in Ft. Poke back in the late '60's early '70's..... Never got to Baton Rouge or any of the good spots..... but we did get snow while I was there. That is another story for the "Army Forums".

It's good to have you with us!

Welcome Drick to the router forum. We now have over 4000 members. That can add up to a lot of experience. We have some excellent woodworkers here. Knowledgeable and willing to help. Welcome.
Welcome Drick! Making sawdust is one of the most relaxing hobbies to have. As far as measuring and cutting goes just remember this secret: If you hide the plans you didnt measure wrong, you were just being creative!
Welcome to the forums Drick. Look forward to reading your posts.
Welcom Drick! I found using the Keller Dovetail jig makes life much easier. The standard jig comes with everything you need all you need supply is the backer board. Setup is easy and quick. Takes the guess work out. Goto for further information.
