Hello From Los Angeles

Recommended Posts

Hey there everyone! just saying hello from Los Angeles.  I'm interested in all types of woodworking from furniture, to carpentry, construction. Some I do for myself and some for income. I hope to be helpful where I can and learn from some of the fine craftsman I've seen on here while browsing around!

Welcome to the forum. 

There is a lot of experience here and sometimes you will get more than one way to fix a problem offered up. They might all work so it just depends on your skills and equipment to chose one that will work for you.

Yeah it was 88 downtown today. I'm your neighbor.  Over the hill in Simi.

Ahhh yes. I get out to Simi on occasion.  I know many in the country would think I'm crazy for complaining that it's beach weather in Feb. But seriously.... A little winter isn't a bad thing!

Yep, out of garage at home.  I owned a Motorcycle shop in the past, so I have a lot of metal working tools, but also very much into woodworking, or really building and fab of any kind. So it's nice to be able to build almost anything I want out of my shop. My biggest problem these days is space. I'm planning an addition to the garage and the house. Just haven't gotten to it.  I'm an Audio Engineer and design and build studios and facilities for a living so I end up building furniture and custom solutions for them all of the time, since it's a small industry in many cases an off the shelf solution doesn't exist.  Lately I've been doing a lot for our house and friends.   What about you?

Welcome in, kbj! I last visited the left coast nearly 33 years ago, but I recall the weather being much more hospitable even than the mid-south climate of home. Wouldn't mind coming back out there, someday.
