Hello all!

Not sure if this space is still active, but I sure hope so.

I've been a maker for a while, but mostly using standard tools for carpentry and construction.  I have rusting coding skills in PHP and Python, that I want to dust off. 

I also have at least one of most basic shop/construction tools.  I also have a Dremel Digilab and a mid-level sewing machine.

With that in mind, here are the skills I can contribute and want to develop. I've provided a shorthand for my knowledge/experience. 

TK: Theoretical Knowledge (from reading and watching videos). 
PE:  Practical Experience (actually doing the work)
0-3 scale:  0 = None, 3 = Expert

  2. Frame Construction — TK:1 PE:2
