I have been visiting and reading alot of the posts on LJ’s for quite awhile. Finally signed up the other day and one of the first things I read, mentioned the new Home Refurbers site. As this is more to my skill and knowledge levels, here I am. I noticed that there are quite a few familiar names here at HR and as more people find this site I am sure it will develope into very good source of information and a chance to meet a lot of talented and friendly people.

I retired about a year ago and have been catching up on my honey do list. I am in the process of inclosing the last two bays of my shop to set up a woodshop. Nothing fancy, it is 24×30, I am in the middle of making a sliding door then I will be able to lock it up. My first project, besides the shop, which is never ending, will be to build a playhouse for the grandkids.

When I figure out how to post pictures, I will update my profile. Looking forward to spending my evenings on HR, sure beats TV.

Welcome, Virgil. This is where most of us post our photos http://photobucket.com/ , mainly to add a photo to someone elses blog. If you want to start your own blog, you can upload directly from your computer files. So, get to work and let us see what you’re up to.

Hi Virgil,
I am a lot newer than you. This site is great. I learned a lot and spent some time just cruising the site as well.
