Good Morning American Woodworkers and our Friends Around the World!

Good morning to all of you fine ladies and gentlemen who are fortunate enough to be woodworkers. I am a new member to this site, but have participated in another forum site for several years and am looking for some new inspiration.

I am a transplanted Okie that has been a woodworker in three states, and six locations in the past 30+ years; moving to chase the job/dollars. While Oklahoma may not be my ideal location due to the weird and wild weather, it has become home. I am a semi-retired old dude that just can't bring myself to say that I am RETIRED just yet. I still work part time and woodwork as much as I can when I can; making all types of projects. I hope to be inspired and mentally stimulated by all of the posts on this site, and am looking forward to participating when I feel that I can add something to the conversation. BTW, my avatar bear is sleeping, not dead, just like the rest of us.

Welcome here RDW, to this friendly WW forum where there is always room for one more. There are many facets to WW, and with "30+ years" in the sawdust, what is the area that you like most? Enjoy your stay, and be safe.

That's a pretty "impressive" intro

We are not used to that much outreach in an intro, but welcome none the less. Your situation sounds very similar to a whole lot of us here, retired or semi-retired. We also have a bunch of younger folks, just starting out and a few ambitious ladies as members. We would welcome any photos you have of previous projects to show your skills and shop equipment. :smile3:

What wood species is available in OK for woodworking projects?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Woodnthings: Most of the popular domestic and exotic species are available for projects here in OK. We have Woodcraft stores and there are several independent hardwood dealers and numerous local sawmills that cut oak, walnut and other locals. Of course we can order from Bell, Woodworkers Source, Hearne and the other UPS delivered on line retailers.

Woodchux:
I like the sense of accomplishment from a well built, finished project. I have done desks, cabinets, bookcases, tool chests, boxes, humidors, knives, pens, bowls, outdoor furniture etc. I like to do a little bit of everything to broaden my skill set. Thanks for asking.
