    Hi from Los Angeles

    Just wanted to say hi.

    I just joined the forum. My name is Jesper and I live in Los Angeles area.
    I started getting interested in woodworking about a year ago and have collected a few tools, but havent really build anything yet and it will be a while before I can get back into the garage since we just had a daughter 2 month ago

    But, I still read some train forums (a big model train fan) and a couple of wood working forums almost daily, just to get my daily fix..

    Welcome to Family Woodworking. A great bunch of people, but we definitely need more Californians.

    What part of LA are you in?

    Cheers,

    Welcome Jasper. I would think with a 2 month old baby that the garage might be a great place to catch some sleep.

    Thanks for the welcome. I'm located in Simi Valley. I have a 2 1/2 car garage (it is called a 3 car, but no way you can fit 3 cars in there) where I have the 1 stall, approx 16x11' for my workshop. So far I have a tablesaw, router with table, miter saw and a dust collector plus the basic hand tools, not much yet, but I will get the tools as I need them.

    After I bought my table saw and dust collector (and had 220V installed) I had to promise my wife that I would build somehting before buying any more tools, so ... hmmm

    You have plenty tools to get out of trouble with the wife. Cutting boards, trinket (or jewelry) boxes, bookcases, beds, tables...the list is almost endless. And we're all here to help if you get stumped on anything.

    I'm going to be a bit east of you in Northridge the last weekend of November and the first weekend of December. I'll be selling some turned things at a Holiday Market in an empty Linens and Things building across from the Northridge Mall. If you're in the area either weekend, it'd be great to meet you. I'll post more specific details about the location a few days prior.
