    I'm a new member!

    I'm a hobby woodworker/carpenter and have mostly been working projects around the home (deck, attic remodel, etc.). I have had a shop all my life (my dad still has a wood and metal shop) but just started outfitting my own shop for more furniture work (6" jointer, 13" planer, guided (EZ) saw system with 7.25 and 10.25 saws, etc.). I'm also have a number of hand tools and I aspire to get more experience with (and more of) them in the future.

    I hope to finish a cyclone in the not-to-distant future before I embark on the construction of A&C pieces.

    At this point, I'm mostly a lurker as I don't yet have the experience/abilities as the rest of you.

    Thanks for having me!

    Well welcome Kevin! We would really like to see your shop and pictures of stuff you build. Around here we are picture freaks!!!!
    We have had a few family members here build their own cyclone systems or redesign their cyclone system or upgrade their systems. Hopefully they will speak up and show you the path to their threads so you can read up on their experiences and not have to reinvent the wheel!

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
