The only way to get good at it, is to do it, then do it some more,———-Then keep at it. This is a great place to learn. I wish Lumberjocks had been around about 45 years ago when I started.

Strange?
Here’s a more than year old qoute:

“I have a custom rustic furniture woodshop in Central Texas in Little River – Academy, Texas. I enjoy working with reclaimed materials from old barns and outbuildings, also salvaged native woods. I have a WoodWorkers Logosol Mill and my partners have bigger Norwoods and dimension Mills. Through our co-op we are able to work with a lot of different native woods like Spalted Pecan, Mesquite, BlackJack Oak, Juniper, Mountain Cedar, Red Cedar, etc.. My current projects are to “survive this new economy and make a complete dining and bedroom set of Spalted Pecan and complete bedroom set of Aromatic Red Cedar and spalted pecan, as I have alot of this lumber and need the space back in my shop :) I enjoy working with Pecan the most and barbecueing Beer Can Chicken with the scraps, and most of all hanging out with my son :)”

Haha Patron, thats classic. That comment truly shows the perfectionist nature of woodworkers, always striving to make the next one better. So addictive!

I agree with you.

My name is Jeff, I’ve been woodworking for about 2 years now and I am no good at it either!

I’m thinking that SawDustnSplinters2 posted under dad’s moniker. As a 9 year old new member he is new to wood working. I welcome him to LJ. Life is a journey that begins with a first step. You are sure to get some advice here.

HEHEHE , I did not notice this blog till today….you are right Bureaucrat… yea that was my son 9yr old Alex and SawDustnSplinters2, he wanted me to help sign him up during the summer while he helped me at shows. He was bored hanging out in the RV on my laptop while I was working a show in the Hill Country of Texas, he did not understand that the site automatically logs the last person in, and that he needed to sign out and back in. Oh Well that is too cute and funny.

He has really been on to me to get him a woodcarving set but I am a little leary as I know how sharp my Pfiel swiss made gouges and knives are. Can anyone recommend a good beginners set, I am thinking I should get him the protective carving hand gloves for sure…At his age I want to get him interested in good hobbies, sports, and healthy interests because before you know it he will be 12 and then 16 and well you know what I mean…He is very bright and does well in school, he is in the FFA and shows his lamb at the county fair every year, He picks things up quickly and he will do well at whatever he learns.

Thanx guys…
