Missouri woodworker

Howdy, I'm retired, but now working part time at a small woodworking shop running a CNC router. I'm now doing 2 of my favorite things, woodworking and computers all rolled into one job, lotsa fun.

I belong to several forums and this one seems especially good (plenty of good info and adults acting like adults ). I'll try to participate when I have someting to offer, the rest of the time I'll read and learn....Mike

Howdy; I'm retired too (no wait, just tired)! Yes it is nice to see well behaved adults in a forum for a change. I am located in the NW so just about as far as I can be from there. There is no way that I could take all that heat and humidity down there. I would like to get some of that hardwood that seems to grow all over the place down there. Seems like that stuff is a common as pine trees up here.

Life is not about how fast you can run or how high you can climb but how well you bounce.

Yup, lotsa hardwood, of course we call it....firewood . I've been in and out of woodworking over the years (too darn many hobbies), but I've been thinking about cuttting/drying my own wood for my projects. I just bought a new Stihl chainsaw, with a longer bar and an attachment or two I think I could save myself a bunch of money on wood. OK....add that to my list

cutting my own wood

Mike, we do have a lot of hardwood but not all of it is good. I took a post oak to a sawmill and I thought I would get enough to make something. This tree was the ugliest wood ever. BUT, I have taken some logs to the sawmill and he gets them to where I can handle them on my bandsaw. Mostly I like quartersawn white oak. I have the makings for a solar kiln in my backyard and just not enough time to build it. I just sprayed a pair of night stands and a piano bench tonight with lacquer. Tomorrow final assembly and maybe get paid on Friday, and this is my hobby and I love it. Mike welcome to the forum and if you're ever over my way stop in and say hi.
