Also new to the forum

I saw the introduction thread and thought I'd post one. I plan on using this forum quite a bit so here goes...
I love to build things using my own designs, which tend to be very simple and crafty. I've built all kinds of things from bookshelves to many birdfeeders, treestands and my latest, an entertainment center, though modest it is. I was fortunate enough to talk my lovely bride into moving out to the country and found a house with a cinderblock shed, which I use for everything from woodworking, butchering deer, casting bullets and just throwing a few back with the friends in my life. Here are a few very random pics, they happened to be on my machine here at work:
















My wife and I started an apple orchard back in Nov '07. We cut a few cedars down to make room for the trees. I evetually took the cedars to a local sawmill and had them cut into 1 inch boards. You can see them stacked in the shed in some of the pics above. Anyways, I'm ready to start working with them. Two items planned are a chest for the foot of the bed and a new coffee table.
Thanks for allowing me to introduce myself! I look forwards to hearing from you and learning from you.

Welcome to the forum.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

I love the use of the free weights and tool rolls in your one glue up picture! You work like I do, grab anything that's handy and heavy. Welcome !!

thanks for the welcomes all~

as for the shop stove, its an Atlanta Stove Works #27 box. The previous owner left it there! I can't believe it.
The shop is about 270 square feet with an insulated attic. The stove heats it quite nicely!
I'm in the triangle area of NC. I wish I was out in the country a little further. Raleigh traffic can be terrible but not as bad as some other cities I've lived in. Thanks again all
