    Hello all!

    Good afternoon all,

    I'm excited to have just joined this forum! I currently have very little wood working experience (~1 year) but do have a very healthy interest in woodworking as a hobby (mainly furniture, built ins and a treehouse/play house for my daughters). I've taken several classes at the Richmond Woodcraft store which has increased my interest exponentially. At this stage, I'm beginning to try and set up a garage workshop with the tools that I have. I just recently purchased the foundation for my workshop in the form of a SS 3HP PCS and am chomping at the bit to start making sawdust. I'm really very much looking forward to soaking up all of the advice and knowledge that the forum members are willing to lend and share respectively, and make some more friends who share the same interest at the same time. Looking forward to tapping in to the wealth of information here!

    John

    Glad to have you with us John. There is a wealth of information here, and a great place to ask questions about woodworking and tools. Dive right in to the sawdust pile and fun with the rest of us!

    Re: Hello all!

    Welcome to the site, John. Glad you found us and decided to join in. As others have said above, we're all about learning and helping each other.
    I'll gladly tell you how I do something. Just please don't confuse that with the right way to do it, and almost certainly not the only way.
