Wave from Southeast Michigan

Hello There from SouthEast Michigan!

I am relatively new to the field of fine woodworking.  I have always done general construction, trim work, and have done several Anna-White-esque types of furniture. I recently picked up my first real table saw, trading in a cheap Ryobi for a R4512.

I found Marc about two years ago when looking for plans to make a pizza peel for my father in law.  That led to finding the WT crew and to me being here.

If anyone knows a good source of hardwood in\near SE Michigan, I would love to hear about it. Same goes for any good guilds in the area!

I am still working on building out some of my tools.  Working on trying to find a bandsaw, jointer, and some hand planes.  I have a DW734 so planer is covered for now.  I have already learned a ton from watching and listening and can't wait to learn more.

I think my first major project will be a Roubo..... Already have the tail vise.

Welcome, Ben.

Hopefully you are already on top of pwrk's post about 50 hand planes for sale!

JUST replied to that.  Some other guildies had pointed it out to me. Jumped right on that.  Trying to convince Mel\Llama to sell me his LN62 - But so far no luck :-p

Welcome to the forum, Ben ! Sounds like you are on the right track with your tool purchases. Which tablesaw did you replace the Ryobi with?

Hey there Ben. Welcome to the forum. I am in Ann Arbor. Where are you located? I can help point you in a direction for lumber and guilds.
