    Welcome to the neighborhood! There are lots of great people with tons of knowledge to share. Take advantage of the workshops that are put on, great way to learn and meet other woodworkers.

    Re: New member from New Bern

    Dan,
    Welcome to the site - there is a pretty active group out by you that meet for lunch (new Bern lunch bunch - they are meeting tomorrow;
    https://www.ncwoodworker.net/forums/...highlight=bern)

    I tell everyone - you get out of NCWW what you put in. Submitting pictures and asking (and answering) questions are the best ways to get involved and stay involved!
    Also, from our "state of the site" from our president Mike Davis - you see that our outreach programs always want volunteers and that is a REALLY great way of meeting people on the site with the extra benefit of a feeling of fulfillment when a child makes his or her first....

    Last but certainly not least are the workshops. Another great way to meet people and numerous cost effective ways to learn!

    Re: New member from New Bern

    Danny, we usually meet for lunch at Morgan's on the first Wednesday of each month. However, this month a couple of us got roped into other commitments, so we'll meet tomorrow ( 6/14) at 1130 at Morgan's. Should you arrive a little late, ask at the desk for the woodworkers.
    Come join us!

    Welcome Danny! Looking forward to seeing your workshop develop and, of course, your projects.

    Welcome to the virtual dustpile, Danny!
    The thing that holds up all my woodworking is simply getting started.
