Just found this forum and thought I'd try it out.
I'm a native Arkansan, but moved to SW Missouri a couple of years ago. I've been working with wood since I was in the 9th grade which puts it at about 35 years, but it's been off and on. A recent bout with unemployment got me back in the mood.
My pride and joy is a gun cabinet I made in 9th grade shop from walnut that was from a tree on my dad's farm. I still own the land where the tree grew and still have the gun cabinet. It is solid walnut with very few nails.
I enjoy fly fishing, fly tying, hunting, playing guitar, and - oh yeah.. that wood working thing...
I hope you have a sense of humor here, because I like to joke around a bit. Try not to hurt feelings, but just enough to keep things from getting too boring.
Anyway, I thought I'd share a couple of my latest projects:
First image is a fly tying station. For those who don't know, you can store your materials and tools here and attach a vise for tying. This one is smaller than many for portability.
Bottom left is a gun vise that I just completed except for the finish. I only have one coat on it, but couldn't wait to share.
The two images on the right are my first attempt at a fly box. This one is about 5x4 inches. A couple of mistakes on this one, but hey... I'm still learning.
