Thread: Newbie from Indianapolis

  1. #1

    Newbie from Indianapolis

    Hi everyone! My name is Ashley (as seen by my handle, of course) and I'm a complete newbie to the forums. In fact, I'm a complete newbie to woodworking! My husband of 6 years has been a huge woodworking buff and he figured I should get involved with his shenanigans. . . . and the kids too.

    Anyway, he suggested that I find a forum or join a workshop to help me get started. For me, the easiest thing was to find a forum -- and low and behold, this is probably the most (eerily) perfect forum I could find. Our goal for the end of this summer is to make our own patio furniture. Will it work out? Who knows? We're certainly gonna try. In the meantime, I'll browse the forums, ask questions and hopefully make some neat friends.

    Seeya around, everyone!
    Can I make my own patio furniture? You bet your sweet bippy, I can.

    Welcome to the family Ashley!

    There are a couple of folks on here that have built their own patio furniture, I'm sure they'll introduce themselves soon enough.

    P.S. We like lots of project pics, no pics...didn't happen.
