Hello from Northern Maine

Just wanted to introduce myself. Up here in Maine this morning we
are starting to watch some of our snow dissipear, which seems to take forever seeing we usaully get 6'-8' a year. I have built a new
workshop this summer to pursue more of my woodworking interests.
I am currently working on a lot of interior pine pieces for customers
through a couple small craft stores up in my area. One project that I got last summer for the company that I actual work for full time was building Log Trusses for ther log home displays that they send to all
the Log home shows throughout the country. I built a total of 8 of them and it was well worth it got alot of complimants and drummed
up some extra business.The only problem that i have where Iam located is it is very rural everything is a hour to 2 hour drive to any
lumber store or tool supply places, so when i go i have to double check what i need twice so i dont loose a project becuase I dont have what they need. Up here in maine I watch the news and you
always here about the downed ecconomy and how it is effecting so
many people. I think if half these people had got of the couch at a young age and helped and learned differant skills, if the lost there job due something differant. Be a jack of all trades master of none
is a good maine way. Well have to feed my hay burners all of you take care and happy building.

Hi Travis

Welcome from one Mainiac to another. Although it's been some time since I have lived in Maine I have always tried to use my Yankee ingenuity to get me through the tough times and like you said to be a jack of all trades. Hope you thaw out soon and get to make some good sawdust.
