new here from central pa.

hello all
i just joined today and have spent a few hours looking around. it seems like a real friendly place.
im new to woodworking and may need a few pointers in the future but for now ill just look,read and learn.
i collect antique reel mowers and repair them and i also make walkingsticks. i want to start making bird houses and little outhouses and the like. i just need to get a few more tools but not many.
i live in central pa in huntingdon county, is there anyone close?

Howdy Neighbor !!!

I am in south central PA. The town of Fayetteville. Midway between the town of Chambersburg which was burned down twice by Confederate soldiers because they wouldn't pay the protection money and the town of Gettysburg where the same Army had their butt handed to them when they went looking for shoes.

Well, enough of history, welcome.


Come on in, the beer's cold and the wood's dry.
We keep the Red Oak piled 6 feet high.

New member, old woodworker

My name is Michael Richardson, but mi mates call me Woody.
I wonder why?
A new bloke here to the forum as I joined today.
I am a professional woodworker having started as an apprentice carpenter at the tender age 16 in Leicester, England way back in 1966 when we used hand tools on biulding sites.
Yes.... I have been in this business for 43 years. I was transpIanted to Jacksonville Florida in 1984 where I now own a commercial cabinetmaking business. You can check out our website at It may be the other end of the scale for some here, but none the less, if you want to know if anybody else has messed up doing can probably guess that I have.......... and more than likely have a fix for it that I can share.

Hobbys are [riding and] restoring motorcycles, houses, furniture.

I enjoy plumbing, electrical, brickwork, trim work..........but dislike
painting, carpeting, painting, formwork, painting and painting.

What is most enjoyable is having a good beer after a hard days achievements and helping others perpetuate this fine craft.

I never stop learning.
