Anchorage, Alaska

Hello all! I found my way here from the DIY Chatroom. All the tools I bought to remodel the house will come in handy for all of the woodworking projects I have in mind. I've done several bookcases, a small table, and other little projects (like a 1954 ranch house!) I've done some box joints, but I'd love learn dovetails. Currently I'm rehabbing the shed/shop in the backyard so I'll have a place to work this winter, which should be along any day now.....

Hi -

Alaska, eh? Is it tough to get hardwood up there? My limited knowledge of Alaska makes me think of only conifers.

Welcome Billinak!

Yo Boardman my limited knowledge of Alaska makes me think only of miserable cold, snow, and mud.

Billi don't take offense I don't have one of those "Texas is superior" attitudes, it's just that I am a cold weather wimp.

I truly wish I could tolerate it. It is a beautiful place. We have close friends that live near some small town I can't remember the name of, and they offered us any 5 acres we want to go build a house on their Ponderosa sized spread where we can live/retreat/come-and-go as we please but I just can't hang long enough to even build a cabin up there I bet.

We are going to go visit one of these days but you can bet it will be in whatever the hottest month is there.

Tex - I lived in Tucson AZ for a couple years and got REAL tired of 105 degrees and brilliant sunshive every day from May to September. True...the humidity was usually 4 - 10% but that just makes you toasted and dry rather than toasted and moist. MN is a kinda in-between place.
