Thread: Hello from California

  1. #1

    Hello from California

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new to woodworking in the sense that I'm getting serious about learning the craft and (fingers crossed) living up to my grandfather's legacy. He was a master cabinetmaker, trained in Hungary, and became the lead woodworker for National Cash Register Co, in Dayton, OH.

    At the moment, I've got a handful of small projects going in my home shop. I'm learning as I go, the only way I've ever done things And when those inevitable mistakes happen, I do my best to grin and bear it

    Been reading RJ DeCristoforo's book on joinery (Joints and their applications), and what a resource of information and how-to!

    Looking forward to meeting you and learning more about the art and craft of woodwork. Hope I can share something useful for you, too.

    Cheers,
    Aaron

    Welcome to the clubhouse, Aaron. Glad to have you here.

    BTW, I never did trust anyone from California. (Especially long haired blond guys.)
