Hi guys

George could still be away on holiday. :)

Looks like George lost interest...

Anyone else want to start a group and abandon it?

Thanks Ted for the invite.  I am 63 years old, so I hope to help.  If anyone in the club live in the Austin, TX. area, you can contact me, and we will exchange ideas.  If you need to use my tools, I'll give you my address, since I don't loan tools, you have to come here to work.  This is my Chocolate Brown Wood Shop.

Welcome!  I wish I had started much younger.  I can imagine some of the problems like:

  • Access to a shop & tools
  • No credit card to order from online sources
  • People who don't understand these are real instruments
  • Being underage and not allowed in many of the venues where these instruments are played
  • NO MONEY!!!
  • Having to rely on everyone for everything

Did I miss anything?  Hopefully these and others problems can be solved here.
