Hello from northern Illinois

I've been lurking long enough , time to crawl out from under the woodwork. I've just dabbled in woodworking here and there over the years but now wish to get serious and build some furnature. Particularly a mission style dining table and chairs..so you've been warned watch out for a lot of dumb questions. I recently picked up a lightly used rigid jointer and just today got a CP 15" planer at auction ( looks almost exactly like a grizzly 1021 ( date on it is 1986 and a test piece came out very nice )). I'm stoked !

welcome

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Welcome to the forum! Check the historic stuff for questions (search function). I have found a lot of information already here...

Welcome to woodtalk. I think you will be happy with the wealth of knowledge on this forum.

Don't know how I missed your post in September, but welcome from St.Charles, IL. Where in Illinois are you?

I used to be fairly indecisive, but now....... I'm not so sure.

Welcome to the forum!
I assume you already had a table saw.
Mission Style has a wonderful esthetic.

I have a pretty good supply of kiln dried rough planed cherry that

I traded work for that should tie me over for a good while.

I know of a Kirkand ,Il sawmill and I believe I've been told of one

southwest of Rockford ( off of meridian I think ).

Mulvain is in Durand , got my basement hickory trim from them.
