Welcome, Rudder. Fellow Okie here. I'm near Owasso and Collinsville, just north of Tulsa. I think wood is high everywhere but I'll bet it is a little more scarce in the Kingfisher area. Most of mine comes from NW Arkansas. If you're ever in the Tulsa area, send me a message, we'll get together and turn some good wood into sawdust.

Welcome to the forum Rudder.
My cousin lives nearby. He's wondering what the heck happened to his fence. Just kidding, I don't have a cousin out there.

Welcome to the forum. It is easy to see that you are new to woodworking because you obtained a fence. Fences have finish on them which makes them a pain in the butt to work with. Go to the new construction homes and see what you can dig up. Supporting wall my @$$.

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

Hi guys, first post here. Just wanted to comment on glad to see other Okies here. Rudder and joasis the world is smaller than you think. I graduated from Dover and that is where my wife grew up. Her family is all still there. Her parents actually live out in the Loyal area.

I myself am not much of a woodworker and I am just starting to learn. I am more of a turner for about the last 1 1/2 years, but trying to figure out where to start on flatwork.
