Location: Kite, GA

Update, 06/30/2013, Well, we have made the move to GA. Moved here so my wife could take care of her 88yo father. It was just too stressful trying to do it from 12 hours away. We have moved into his house with just over an acre of land. There's a 100+ year-old oak in the front yard and we have 3 pecan trees that are between 50 and 100 years old that put out a TON of pecans each year. Has a huge back yard that will be perfect for putting up a new shop building. Been here almost a month and have started looking for full-time employment. Nothing yet, but hopefully soon. Biggest issue for us now is our house back in 10aSEE is on the market, and if it doesn't sell soon it's gonna drain our savings.

I've been interested in working with wood since I was just a pup. But it wasnt till the past few years that I was able to actually able to set up a REAL shop and start building things. I usually tell people I consider myself to be a "WoodButcher" 'cause I can turn 100bucks worth of oak and maple into sawdust with the best of 'em :-)

The project I'm most proud of is the new dining room table I built for my wife last year. I was given some 100+ year-old barn wood (oak) and I used maple between the boards for a stripe effect. Hand rubbed it with about 15 coats of Tung oil and (I think) it came out pretty nice.

welcome joe

at every ‘have your say’ comment place
there are 4 little ‘TV’ looking things
the fourth one ’img’
will open your photo stash
and just follow the instructions
when you hit ‘insert this image’
the picture code will appear
wherever the cursor is at that time
(so you want to make sure it is clear
of other text or things
as it will drop right in the middle of a sentence
if that is where the cursor is

to highlight words or sentences
drag the cursor over whatever you want to highlight
and it turns blue
hit the B button and it will turn it to bold
the I button same thing for italics
the third button is for inserting links as words
and not the whole link gobledi gook
(you have to have a link in copy for this)
you can use it in a word or sentence without all the link specs

just one word of help
your pictures need to be less than 3mb’s
or they wont load
as that is the max allowed her
and should be sized to a reasonable size
or they will only show a part of them

gluck !

Welcome to LJ’s!

We are wood addicts around here and loving every minute of it.

You have commented about being a novice. We were all there. If you talk to the folks here and want to learn, you’ll find yourself doing things you never imagined before. Great place to be.

Have fun.
