Thread: Can I introduce myself?

  1. #1

    Red face Can I introduce myself?

    I happened to find Sawmill Creek by accident while looking for some Corel Draw help with my Trotec laser. I only joined a few days ago, and wanted to introduce myself and ask if there are any tips or must knows about posting I should know (other than the must read).

    I decided on a whim to try woodworking a few years after high school and now have my Red Seal in Cabinetmaking. I started my own woodworking and laser engraving company when my maternity leave ended over 3 years ago. My Trotec is a new addition to the family but I am already loving all the ways I can create with it.

    Thank you for allowing me to join your fantastic group, I look forward to getting extra help from (or offering it to) like minded people.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Another great forum is EngravingEtc that I visit daily like here.

    Here it is a Sunday and you have a bunch of Welcome Reply's.

    When you get stuck on a weekend in Corel or a Laser Question you are likely to find a quick answer here and on EE by just asking.

    Welcome Neighbor to the North.
