Welcome Samgee. To what level of school are you referring? We have several high school and young college age members. We like it when we see younger generations getting into the craft. I hope you will hang around and learn (and share your own knowledge!) and participate frequently.

Welcome to the site Samgee!
I'll stand beside Timbers in saying that I'm very happy to see younger folks picking up and enjoying the trade.

Did you say tool sale?

Quick question. What do you use hackberry for?
I was cruising around your website and saw that you offer it.
I've just never heard of it being used for anything except brush pile material.

Just to Say Hi

Logged on to this site today. I am from Australia retired Teacher Cabinetmaker and Router specialist.
I have been working with template guides and Female templates and I have introduced this method of routing to the Blind where I returned to teaching for a year in charge of the group.
Working with Guides is not common among router users I have found out. I used to travel round Australia at the various wood shows giving demonstrations on the use of the guides. Working with the guides will also introduce greater safety awareness into routing.
I would be interested in your opinion when working with the guides. Maybe post a few pics I will also do likewise if there is any interest.
My latest project is dining room chairs completed with the router to do all the shaping and producing the Mortice and Tenon Joints

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only high schooler. I don't know how much of my knowledge you guys wouldn't already know, but I'm eager to learn from all of you :D

Hi! I am also new here and saw you were from Nebraska so wanted to say hello. I was born in Minden but haven't lived there since I was very young.

I am not the guy you asked the question of, but hackberry it a very hard wood. Planes and turns well, heavy and dense. It does not stain well (kinda like hard maple). It is also cool spalted. Cut fresh it dries very white. Another overlooked hardwood, too often used for railroad ties. Interlocking grain, great for fine joinery or utilitarian use. I would trust and 8/4 hackberry board to hold 2X the weight of and oak one. And it is pretty really.
