New member joining the green movement .
« on: September 08, 2014, 03:40 PM »
Hi to all on FOG . Just signed on to see what this place has for me . Just bought some green for the first time . Bought a TS 55 REQ , CT MIDI , festool tool box tail , quick clamps and deflector .


I'm a 32 year old contractor from New York . Married with to baby girls a 5 month old and 16 month old . Been in trade since I was 14 helping family around job sites . Have my own business now for 6 years . I drive ford trucks . I love to fish and hunt when not working . Construction is all I know .

Welcome to the FOG!  Glad to see younger guys getting interested early because you will have a LONG time to learn and profit from using the tools.

First, [welcome] to the FOG!

Always glad to see another craftsman join the 'green' team. But...

WE NEED TO SEE PICTURES OF YOUR PROJECTS!

Some of us can't read real good, but we sure like pictures!

My day job feeds my green addiction.... Woodworking as a hobby. Trying to get into finish carpentry/cabinet making after I spend years plugging around my house with all sorts of projects (latest was rebuilding my patio roof, I posted some pics about that). I want to start building furniture for fun and maybe money eventually. Long road ahead of me.... Pondering redo of my kitchen but let's get not ahead of ourselves.......
