Default Hello from Ohio!

Hello, fellow DIY-ers! My name is Troy, and I am a hobby DIY guy.

In the past, my projects were mainly building new things out of wood, minor plumbing repair (PVC mostly) and things like that. I have some decent, basic power tools; router & table, drill press, compound miter saw, table saw, and the obligatory power hand tools. They have served me quite well so far, and this year I am hoping to expand into some larger projects, such as an outbuilding and possibly a new deck.

Recently, my wife and i decided to upgrade our rental, which included sanding down and refinishing the hardwood floors (2 bedrooms, a hallway, and a living room), and a bathroom remodeling project (which I have started a thread about).

I am looking forward to getting some good tips and tricks from everyone here, and I hope to be able to contribute my own bits now and then as well.

Edit: Forgot to mention that I am a vinyl decal, sign, and banner maker, too. I have a small graphic design hobby/business as a supplement to my "real" job as a draftsman. I very much enjoy the creativity involved in the design process of making something for my customers!
