    Hello & greetings to all

    I wanted to stop in and introduce myself. I ran across your forum mentioned at another site so I gave it a look. I've been very impressed with what I've read here and hope to be adopted into the Family.

    I'm not a woodworker per se though I've worked (self-employed) for various periods of time over the last 30 years in the construction and remodeling business.

    My grand dream is to in the next 3 years or so retire from my current civil service job and expand my very small part-time remodeling/trim carpentry business and specialize in high end trim and cabinetry work as well as historic restoration.

    It looks like your forum will be a great source of knowledge to help me see my dream through to fruition. And on the chance I can be of help to any of you I'll do my best to share what I know.

    I read elsewhere that you all like pictures so I'll see if I can attach one. It's just some ordinary red oak traditional craftsman style moulding that I'm finishing & installing. (FWIW I'm a converted waterbourne finish guy.)

    Best Regards to all,

    Darrin Wyatt

    Hey Darrin, welcome to the family!

    Good first post, you included a pic!

    We like pics!

    Now how about a shop tour?

    Your dream sounds like a good one, we have a member here, Jim Hager, (Bony) who has just finished his last days teaching and will now go full time in his wood working business.

    Again, welcome!
