I joined because of a kind invitation from Stick. Thank you...

 

I'm new here, though not to woodworking. I have a few years experience, scattered over as many decades. My last few years experience is blissfully spoiled by access to the amazing Dallas Makerspace. In recently moving from Dallas to colder places, I sold almost everything, and I'm now rebuilding my shop from scratch.

 

I consider this an adventure and opportunity to explore a new approach. My current plan, though constantly evolving, is to operate as long as possible without replacing my table saw and miter saw, instead using a DIY tracksaw/circular saw with an MFT style cutting table. I don't think I'll install crown molding that way, but I'll see how far I can ride this. Portability is a major consideration for all my solutions as I will move again. Finding dust collection and winter heating solutions for an uninsulated garage shop is part of the adventure.

 

My children's increasing interest in learning... and creating their own dreams is wonderful in ways beyond words. And my wife is so happy about the bed I built us before the move that someday soon I'll finish the trim and put a finish on it. This solitary joy of creating isn't so solitary after all.

Welcome, Ashley. Glad you joined the fun. Looking forward to seeing some of your work, (the story is no good without pictures). Hope you brought your sense of humor, also.

 

Now, we normally expect that newly joined members brings doughnuts for the group, however, Stick was being a little piggy lately, stealing them all before the rest of us had a chance. I switched to pie and ice cream instead. But lately our buddy has been backing off of the doughnuts. Guilty conscious I guess! Anyway, forget the pie and ice cream for me, I'm on a diet to loose a few pounds in preparation for the coming holiday over eating.

 

Again, welcome to the fun.

Welcome @AshleyJ...sorry I was absent when you arrived.

@Stick486 wouldn't have invited you over if he didn't think both you and us would not benefit.

My money back guarantee: "you'll like it here!"

Looking forward to seeing you around the virtual workbench often.

It'll be fun as long as Stick and Bill get their Doughnuts and Pie & Ice Cream respectively.  Forget what Bill said about forgetting his Ice Cream.  He holds a grudge.
