My official intro

Nothing special. I am from North Central Oklahoma. Haven't done any woodworking since I was in high school some 16 years ago or so. Probably can't even glue 2 boards together. I do turn pens and have started trying to figure out the whole bowl turning process. Don't have much equipment, but slowly trying to figure out what all to buy as money allows.

I work for an oil company as a pipeline controller. I only work 14 days a month and have alot of free time on my hands and wood is where my interest has always been. I love the feeling of completing something and actually having something to show for it.

Hope everyone has a great day and be safe.

Welcome Cowchaser,

I read your other recent post. Stick around I think you'll find a lot of support here and I'm sure you can share some experiences along the way as you learn.

Liking what you do is half the battle.

Any where near Enid?

Welcome to the mad house, as you have already
seen, I am the only sane person here.

Gluing two boards is a long shot, most of us just
glue tools and fingers. Mostly to the work bench.

I went to school in Enid in the 60's, Phillips University.
Later I worked for the Mercedes dealer there. The most
boring town in the USA.
We would drive to Kingfisher for excitement.

If you went to Kingfisher for excitement you were truly bored. I graduated from Dover 9 miles north of Kingfisher in 92 and that is where we all hung out when there wasn't a party in Dover (no cop). Wifes family is from that area and I have a few scattered in Dover and Kingfisher also. Nice little town all together. I am in Ponca City now, which is where I am from except that 1 year in Dover.

I spent some weekends in Lawton in 1966 before I got shipped out to Germany.
