Hi Y'all..

Retired country boy here from Alabama. Highly inexperienced and looking to increase my knowledge . And maybe sell a piece or two to help pay for this addictive hobby I picked up awhile back.

Welcome. So what do you enjoy building?

The tools don't make the craftsman....

My areas of interest vary..

I dabbled in wood working over the years, but before I retired in 2009 I had outfitted a nice shop where I used to have a garage.

I like furniture ( designed and built chest of drawers, end tables, hall tables, shop furniture, exterior furniture), boxes (made championship ring boxes a number occasions, gift boxes and a few boxes I've sold on request), bowls as gifts, ornaments, ... In last year I've gotten into a midi lathe, exploring turning, pens, bowls, ornaments, ... Also been building some turning tools,..

Looking forward to enhancing my turning experiences and knowledge. I am getting focused on building my own turning tools at the present time.

I would like to figure out how to get more wood for highly figured and natural edged bowls, rather than get the expensive burls and vanilla flavored blanks.

Wood should be easy. In urban areas find who does tree trimming/surgery, just ASK, likely you'll get more than you want (sometimes pays not to be picky). Right of ways for roads and pipelines are good areas.
I'm in rural setting so I get a lot free.

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did in his
sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.
