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.
