I have been one of the lurkers who have been reading a lot here before I ever joined
My name is Mark and I live in NW Arkansas - I really enjoy the beauty of wood and the satisfaction you get from creating with it - I have been playing with sawdust for a number of years, nothing professional just for my own satisfaction and pleasure - had a fairly decent shop setup at one time but it all somehow disapeared about 10 years back following my divorce and now I am finally trying to put things back together for a small garage workshop
I have to say that I am very pleased to have found this forum and have been learning a lot - I know I will never come close to equaling the skill of many here but I bet that I have as much fun in screwing up a perfectly fine piece of a tree as much as anyone!
Mark, thanks for sharing. I am only a novice, but I try really hard to make something worth showing off. I've been to NW Arkansas; Siloam Springs to be exact. I went to the John Brown University to do some work on equipment. I liked the campus and enjoyed walking through the yards and such.
