    The Youngling.

    Hello, my name is Kris and I feel like the youngest person around here. I am 19 and found my interest in woodworking because I'm interested in tackling all forms of art, creativity, and ingenuity. As of late, I've been cleaning my parents basement to make room for a workshop. My next challenge will be making a workbench, but due to my nerdy half, It will be combined with pieces of technology. I'll be attempting the All-in-one workbench...or at least the most-in-one. I don't start off small for anything, I think big, learn as I go, make lots of mistakes, and learn from them. Its just how I am, the harder something is to do, the more I enjoy the time and effort put into it. Hope to learn alot from spending time here.

    P.s. Another Michigander...did you know we have a "Michigander's accent"?

    Hey Welcome aboard Kris!

    We have quite a few geeky types into tech and woodworking. I think you'll find a lot of kindred spirits here as well. I know that I'm certainly in the 'learn as you go' mode!

    Keep us posted on your workbench project, sounds like you'll have a lot of fun building it

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
