Hello from KC area

Hello,

Just wanted to reach out and say hello. My name is Michael and I have been checking out the forums quietly for a bit. It looks a bit intimidating here to me though because I am really new to woodworking so I feel out of my league. I have been putting a shop together and the only guidance I have is online videos, and platforms such as these. If I ask to many questions forgive me just send me a private message. 

I look forward learning as much as I can from others here and if I can add anything I will try. Thanks in advance for all the help and it is nice to meet you.

Welcome!

I don't think it's possible to as too many questions. The best answers come from posts that are explained well and provide pictures/drawings. There is a lot of good information here. These guys are generally responsible for most of what I know.

Welcome to the forums and don't be intimidated at all.  To advance your skills you want to hang around and learn from those that have "been there done that".  You won't advance your skills hanging around people that have the same skills as yours.  Everyone here is still learning, each is just learning at a different level.  Ask all the questions you want.

Duh, Without questions, there are no answers. There's not one of us here that isn't still learning something from someone on this forum.  This place is different than most.   It's here to provide "real" help for those that ask for it. Not here to pick apart anyone's project, unless they are asked to. This is a "learning" forum. you learn from us, and we learn from you.  As far as I know there is only one rule that's true.    "Without pictures, it didn't really happen"  Welcome, and jump right in we're friendly!

Ditto the above.  If you check everyone's profile you're gonna find that we all started sometime.  And if you look at the questions being asked you're gonna find they are often being asked by someone who is "experienced".

Welcome, Michael! All the above is true. We work very hard to keep this forum family and newbie friendly. I would go so far to say that this forum has more genuine knowledge, and less flaming baloney, than any other forum I have visited.

As for questions, ask away! The answers are just as likely to help one of us as you.

At one point in time, we had a fellow on here that knew more than the rest but he outgrew us. Now we’re just a bunch of newbies with some, more knowledgeable than others. Probably a bit understated. Welcome to the forum.

Watch out for coop he is actually wise and knowledgeable but hides it behind a good sense of humor and wry wit.
