Welcome.
Good to have you on board.
Plenty of stories about apprentices from my hand.
Been teaching the trade for nigh onto 30 years.
Just had a surprice visit yesterday from an apprentice, I had 25 years ago.
Hadn't seen him for at least 10 years.
Took me a second to recognize him, truth be told.
He'd gone grey haired.

Thanks Sean for the forum guidance. I have much to learn about internet etiquette. Oh and this weird new Seattle freeze culture too. It was bad before corona virus but is just awful now. When I was a teenager here in the 90's we had grunge rock that was moody now we just have a moody population of begrudging and dismissive folk that don't seem to know what a good time is. Sorry for the rant but your grace was uncharacteristic of this area and kinda like the ALOHA spirit that I have lived with my whole adult life. Thanks

You seem plenty willing to share AND to listen...there will be some good exchanges to come out of that in this TreeHouse. Some really experienced and good folks here. We all learn together.

Welcome to the House.

Welcome T. Plenty of great and very helpful and informed folks on this site. Make yourself at home and ask away. If we don't know then we'll make up something. I've always wanted to visit Seattle. Think I might wait a while now though.

The person who started it wrote woodturning in 2 words.

Seattle freeze is just the way people are around here. It should have read Seattle Freeze Culture.
The people are dismissively friendly. It's the overcast and perpetual drizzle that makes them weird. Water so cold that you never want to swim. Anything over 80 Fahrenheit and they complain about the heat. Tech based hermits for the most part. People really let themselves go to pot around here in every sense. Hahaha

Overcast and perpetual drizzle sounds pretty good to me, and water's only cold til you've been in awhile. Must be a bunch of women there though, cause everyone knows that >70° is hot :^P

My dad got sick and moved here 4 years ago in search of better medicine. My sister who lives here in the area was caring for him and needed help. I moved myself, my wife, and 2 sons here 3 years ago. We are stuck now due to corona virus. This region I believe will thrive due to its predisposition for social distancing due to frigid character of its population, not to mention with everyone buying from our biggest "local" empire Amazon. 🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️
