    Cool Hello from northern Ontario!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a newbie woodworker and I was looking for a community of like minded individuals. It's seems I came to the right place.

    Professionally I'm a videoconferencing technician. I have a beautiful wife a 16 mo. old son and a daughter that's almost here (due in late June).

    My shop is not much more that a garden shed at 10 x 15. But I have to share the space with an ATV, lawnmower, etc. You get the idea. Hopefully in the future I'll get to build a bigger shop.

    I don't have many tools now but those I don't have I can borrow from my dad or my father-in-law.

    I own only three power tools a B&D Drill, a Ridgid 5" ROS and a Ridgid 12" SCMS that I got for christmas from the LOML. My next tool will be a router most likely a Triton 2 1/4 hp.

    Cheers,
    Yann.

    Welcome to the family!

    We all had to start somewhere, at least you have a shed!!

    Yann,

    Welcome from a southern neighbor!

    Congrats on the little one on the way!

    Please feel free to share your ideas and questions.... and pictures too! (projects, tools, shop....etc)

    Everyone needs to start somewhere with their tools.
    I started with 14v Craftsman drill, a low end DeWalt VSR corded drill, and a Porter-Cable Circular saw.

    Glad to have you here!
