Hello everyone

Hello everyone! Allow me to introduce myself.

My name is Scot. I'm a hobbyist woodworker and have been about 13 years. I work primarily with mesquite but venture into all sorts of other woods occasionally. I live in central Texas and work as a educator.

I just do this for fun. It's kind of like a hobby gone all wrong. Over time, I've developed some rather serious addictions to lumber, tools, lumber, tools...etc.

I look forward to being a productive member of the forum. :-)

This is one of my pieces I built a few years ago for my niece. I'll add more pictures as I go. I'm always open to criticism.

Welcome. A guy who introduces himself with a project right off the bat. You'll fit right in.

I don't think I've ever seen such a large Mesquite project with so much clear wood. I wouldn't have thought I'd like that much clear Mesquite but that's super. Very nice work. What finish did you apply?

I finished it with a spit coat (1lb cut) of shellac followed by several coats of danish oil.

I have had a lot of mesquite over the years that was very clear. Having my own mill helps, of course.

Welcome Scot. That's a great project. Looking forward to some more of your postings.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
