Hello from Northeast Illinois


Entering the job market post college has me living at home with the family. The home is new to the family and needs minor work here and there. Otherwise projects will just be to make rooms more livable/fun.

I have developed a need to keep my hands dirty and lack any formal training . . . so I plan to run any ideas past members here to keep me out of trouble. Any skills I have, were developed in wood shop/metal shop/auto shop/robotics throughout middle school and high school. Later knowledge comes mostly from books and small projects.

Oh, and I have worked at Lowes Home Improvement for way too long since high school and throughout college . . . so expect tons of product placement from this location :P

Thanks ahead of time!

Northeast Illinois. Is that like...Chicago?

Or further north?

Just asking. I spent the first 21 years of my life in Waukegan.

Then I moved on to somewhere warm.
