New guy

I wanted to stop by and say hello to everybody. I've been in the woodworking business for a lot of years. I earn my living building parts for the auto seating industry. This in turn, allows me to do some furniture building, and just generally have a lot of fun working in the shop. I do a lot of antique furniture restoring, and I have an old hotrod truck I play with. I teach a Cherokee language class in my spare time, so, I keep busy. If anyone is in my neck of the woods, please stop by. I won't have any cold beer, but, a cold Pepsi can be had. My shop is located between Grand Saline, and Mineola texas....a little spot in the road called Silver Lake. I enjoy reading all the post's, and if I should have something to offer, I will jump in. A guy is never too old to learn. I'm glad to be here.

Hi Charles,

I, too, am a newbie here. I had trouble posting because computers and I aren't exactly old pards. I just got mine about 2 years ago and until then, I had never tried to battle with one. But they are amazing inventions. I have found information in minutes that I had tried to get for years by mail.

I have a 1220 Timberking sawmill and a 25" Woodmaster planner/molder and 10 acres of hardwood timber here in WV that I want to try and cut/saw/dry and finish for my own use. I already have some assorted hardwood lumber air drying that I will try and get finished with a small kiln I plan to build. But the weather has been a killer this winter. We have had non-stop rain and snow since deer season and the wind has blown harder and more often than I can ever remember. But maybe once spring has finally sprung I will be able to smash fingers and pick splinters to my hearts content.

Hope you like it here. I know I do although I have trouble sometimes answering.
