Hello from Oregon
Hello all, my name is Jessica.
I've always enjoyed working with my hands. I'm a leatherworker and also make some jewelry with metal clay. I am now branching out to work with wood. I'm mostly interested in making jewelry with it. I recently bought myself my first big girl tool, a 14" Rikon bandsaw. I have a couple other pieces of equipment, a scroll saw, and a miter saw. I'm looking at getting a dust collector soon and a drill press in the near future. I'm also interested in setting up to do my own wood stabilizing. I really like funky/beautiful woods with a lot of character. Some of my favorites are: buckeye burl, black and white ebony, miscellaneous spalted, ziricote, and box elder to name a few.
I'm sure I'll be asking a lot of questions. I've already got a few in mind, but I hope I'll also be able to contribute to this community.
