Hello from Oklahoma

Hi everyone, I just wanted to make a post here, and tell you a little about myself. I am 27 and run a machine shop in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I work with metal everyday, lathesm mills, grinders... So the woodworking thing is similar, but also completly different. Look forward to learning everything I can to make some nice furniture for around the house.

Welcome Billy, that should make a good combination. Some of your most inovative carpenters are good metal smithes also.

Thanks everyone, I really hope to learn as much as I can. Doing close tolerance machining of +/-.001 gives me a great understanding of what needs to be done in fine woodworking.

Billy, that's a double edged sword. I'm sure you can teach us a thing or two that you bring over from machining tools and techniques.

Welcome from Oklahoma

Hey Billy, welcome to the forum. If you want to learn about fine woodworking, there are a lot of talented folks here, always willing to help out (I'm not included in that group,,,,,,,,,,,,, yeah, I'll help you if I can, but I lost out on the talent part). I work in Tulsa but live just north of town where I make sawdust in one of the coolest wood shops in my neighborhood (OK, it's the only wood shop in the neighborhood). Maybe, I'll catch you around the hood.

Good one, Robert.

In Oklahoma we say, "You know why it's so windy in Oklahoma?"

Answer: Because Kansas sucks and Texas blows.

Thats funny Geoguy. I enjoy a good joke as much as anyone, even if its on me.

Wonder if these jokes were made up by some dude in Louisiana or something.

Hi Billy, welcome to the forum! Probably the most difficult part of woodworking for a machinist like you will be getting used to measuring in fractions.
