Intro from the shop

I have been lurking in here for a couple of years. So I guess it is time to say hello.

A little history:
My parents were both school teachers. Thus, every summer my father did home construction and remodeling.
I started working on his "crew" at about the age of 14. When I say crew - my father, 2 older brothers, myself and usually another teacher.
Since, this was small towns in the central Illinois. It was mostly roofing, additions and remodels.

Because of this "skill", I have been making sawdust ever since.
I wouldn't call my projects fine wood working, but they have passed the wife inspection.

Here in NC, I was lucky to get my shop built before my house. But I still haven't got all the tools placed to my liking yet.
Considering my degree (Computer Science), I have embraced the digital side of woodworking.
I own a CNC router table, small CNC lathe, small CNC mill, 3D printer and Laser cutter.

Welcome! Sounds like you've got your priorities straight as far as workshop and house are concerned. As for getting everything in the perfect spot, even if that's possible it only lasts until the next tool you buy.

Hello Ken, didn't realize you had never done a formal introduction on here! I guess a formal welcome is due then!
