Hello!

Postby RookieFramer » Tue Aug 29, 2017 7:12 pm

Hello everyone. I'm new to framing and am learning from scratch. My long term goal is to start making frames in my garage with hopes to become good enough to supplement my income eventually. I live in Southern Oregon USA and currently work in tech, I've been staring at computer screens for the last 25 years and am looking for ways to do less of it. I want to make things or fix things, something meaningful to me. I am looking for advice on equipment to buy to start with, I have nothing but maybe that's a question for another forum? Anyway, happy to be here and learn, thanks -
