Retired enjoying the good life in western Oregon. Oregon summers are wonderful but the winters are long and wet so that is when I work in the shop. Summers are for fishing and gardening. I live right on one of Oregon's best rivers.
I started wood working many years ago on my first house which needed a lot of work therefore requiring me to learn to make thing with wood. I progressed from 2X4 framing to fine furniture and lathe work over the years. I never took a shop class in school so I learned a lot the hard way.
I work on a wide variety of projects but enjoy lathe turning the most. At this point I consider myself a fairly accomplished wood worker and capable of most projects except carving.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Hi LesB Thanks for the info on the band saw blades, I have put the site on to my favorites, and may order a 32TPI blade and see how it works. I have already received the 24TPI blade I bought from the net, but have not put it on my saw yet. Once I have a chance to try it out, I will post the results, and if the cut is not real clean, I will be trying a 32TPI blade. One of the many things I have learned so far in woodworking, is to make the cut as exact as possible without cutting too much off, this makes the final correction less work and not so time consuming to get a perfect (close to perfect) fit. With the cutting of metal, the less edge clean up and perfecting, I am assuming is also the key. Saving time, and using it for moving forward in the project. work hard and do right it’s mic
