hi everyone.. new member here.. i've reviewed some posts and this seems like a great forum you all have.. Hopefully I can contribute and learn.

i just purchased a home in Lake Forest, CA and although its in great condition I have a list of improvement projects that I want to complete.. I have a decent background with many construction related tasks but no formal training so I will most likely have questions on how to do things correctly (safely).

I have some experience in framing, roofing, woodwork, cement, basic plumbing, automotive.. I also make custom knives so I am a pro on the metal working side.. I foresee having questions with electrical code and general wiring for lighting, bathroom tile, flooring tile and wood, and maybe some plumbing.

I have a pretty good set of tools including table, circular, and sliding miter saws, drills, mill, industrial belt grinder, forge, vibrating sanders, and all the traditional wrenches, pliers, screwdrivers, etc.. I would rather spend money purchasing tools as opposed to hiring contractors. I love to learn and take pride in my work..
