Location: Farmerville, La

I am a 25 year old young man living in NE Louisiana. I am only a beginner level woodworker, but I have an insatiable appetite for knowledge along with an unquenchable thirst for experience. I am recovering from a 'balls to the wall' adolescence, and woodworking has proved to be an excellent catalyst into adulthood. There aren't too many woodworkers around my area(that I've found or know of), and I have always wanted a good group of woodworkin' buddies(everyone knows how woodies enjoy makin' stuff together...I guess it is an innate feeling). I have been lurching in the forums for awhile and have finally decided to become a part of what seems to be the best online woodworking community. I believe it is our kind that has an inherent desire to pass on knowledge, no matter the subject. I am a pretty smart person, but struggling through adolescence set me back a little bit in life. Getting through that also gave me a "maturity growth spurt" and a new found respect for life. I don't like to drink too much, although I will have the occasional beer with dinner, I don't like to party, or go clubbing, or do most things kids my age do around here. I am somewhat of a loner due to the previously mentioned fact, but woodworking also helps me in that respect. I have learned how to properly be dedicated to something, the fine line between detail/efficiency, and an appreciation of the natural world. Before my transition into adulthood, I felt like the world was against me and that good people didn't exist. Until I met a few woodworkers. They are, in general, some of the most kind-hearted, helpful, and sincere people in modern society. I will admit that it's a cut throat, survival of the fittest(Natural I suppose) world, but it is more beautiful than anything else. I thank you in advance for every reply I am sent, every tip, and for your constructive criticism. I will never completely understand this life we live(or human nature for that matter), but I suppose that's what keeps things interesting. If you have made it this far in reading my profile, I thank you and in the words of my Great Uncle Mike "I've got a wood for wood".
