    Another New Guy Saying Hello

    Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum but not to woodworking. I've been working with wood for over 30 years (and am still learning). My garage is my workshop and most of the projects I work on these days are small. Over this past year, I have made my grand daughter a twin size raised panel bed, turned numerous pens, turned a couple of salt and pepper shakers, turned some bowls, built a couple of small tables, made some dollhouse furniture, built a very nice shelf clock, and yesterday nailed two new replacement boards on my fence Planned projects are a bookcase for another grand daughter, a headboard for one of my sons, and making more clocks (clocks are my favorite). Everything I do is for friends and family, and I don't work for money. It's a hobby and I want it to stay that way. I'm married (41 years) and have 4 grown sons and 7 grandkids. If you need or want more info, just ask.....Jim
