Writing from Kansas

Hello. I'm 17 and started a rustic woodworking business three years ago here in Kansas. I enjoy rustic woodworking because it is a form of art and you don't need to be exact with your joinery which is easier for my skill set. My dad gave me a shop to do my business and over the past three years have managed to fill it with woodworking machinery and tools. We also have a sawmill that I use to cut my own wood from local trees. I joined this forum in hopes of learning more about woodworking.

Love that desk! What do you finish it with to get such a high gloss?

Very cool work!

I am quite impressed that a 17 year old has the ambition and talent to undertake a business.

I assume that you are not letting this interfer with your schooling.

I'm not sure what the piece of paper is, its not on my side of the cyber world.
My business isn't interfering with my schooling I decided not to go to higher education and I graduated early.
I use natural shellacs and pigments for my finishes and lots of zero grit. I harvest my wood in the winter so the bark stays on better.

Wood warps no matter what!

This one is part of the post


Even if you enter something in the "Title" line, the forum generates an icon for that space each time. bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
