Hi from Lake Tahoe
I have browsed this forum before, and finally joined. What brought me here was my interset in rough milling some beams. Every year I go into the forest to cut fire wood for next season, and thought that it would be fun to cut some of my own lumber. Beams in particular cause 2x4's are just not worth my time, and I doubt I can get precise enough for boards.
I also build quite a bit of stuff from wood, but I would hardly consider myself a wood worker. Recently I redid the shelves of my kitchen pantry with the help of a real wood working friend of mine. That was quite an accomplishment with great results.
The real reason that I joined is that I have some parts for sale. However I must follow the rules and become an established member before I get to post anything in the classifieds. To give you a preview, I have a bunch of ceramic pepper mill mechanisms that I am trying to sell. The formentioned woodworking friend of tired to get into the custom peppermill business, but that was a bust. He now has a few thousand pepper/salt mill mechanisms, sitting around his shop. I said I would help him try to sell them for him. Not looking to make any money, just trying to get rid of stock and recoup some of his loses.
Wells that's it for now. Take care.
