Just joined tonight!

Wish I had seen this forum before. Great stuff. Been trying to get good at woodworking for about 10 years. Many times my wife is not so sure that she wants my "masterpiece" in the house, but I am getting better.

She is getting less worried when I say "I can build that", so I must be getting better.

Looking forward to getting to know some of you.

Thank's y'all for the welcome

I'm in Frisco, Tx. Used to be a small town, but now over 100,000 citizens and perhaps the fastest growing city in the country.

Guess it will just more people hearing me making sawdust in the garage. "mommy, why does that man alway have sawdust in his eye lashes and why do we hear "damn it! I measured that twice!!!" coming out of his garage?

Hey I come through your "little town" often. My MIL lives there. I remember when Frisco was WAYYYYY out in the boonies. I graduated from Lloyd V. Berkner in 1977 and we never played Frisco obviously because they were like 2A back then if that. But I had a buddy who was from there and we used to go Quail hinting there at his pap's place.

Whenever I would go out there from Richardson it seemed like I was going to another part of the world. Now, you could walk from Richardson to Frisco and have concrete under your feet the whole time. There's no country left between the two cities.

I live out here in north Fannin County, what you would consider the boonies, but we have at least 40 cars drive by a day sometimes and we have already decided we are going to buy another place. Keep this one too, but we are looking to buy 50ish acres within the next 5 years. I am thinking land is going to go down a little wituhin that time but we aren't gonna wait on that. it might keep going up here because of the huge lake getting built, so it's a roll of the dice.

Anyhow, we are satisfied to live like Jeremiah Johnson one day, and the way the world is headed we may all be doing so in a non-voluntary way!

We no longer have our mill open to the public but maybe one day if you find yourself up this way we could make an exception.
