Thanks all. I’ve been doing woodworking off and on since I was about 8. Grandpa liked to let me dig through the scrap bins for wood. I got into wood carving thanks to him and that scrap bin.

I’ve been out of it for a few years since I got a little too personal with a japanese roughing knife and almost took off a finger. After 9 years the feeling is almost all back now so I’m back at it again. I am avoiding the zebrawood though. This time around I have a scroll saw and am playing at making boxes and decorative things. I have a 9’x6”x.25’ section of bloodwood egging me on. That and I found the local lumberyards bin of “special maple”. You dig enough and you find some marvelous wood grain patterns in there for less than 4 bucks a board foot.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks. Good luck with school. My boss was a shop teacher back in the 80’s. She is kind of a pioneering type. We hit it off immediately! One of my kids graduated from UM-Twin Cities and lives near there. I get to see my 2 grand daughters every 3 months or so. Trying desperately to turn them into shop kids.

I took my 8yr old to class with me one day last week. We are working on a project making adirondack chairs. My classmates put her to work tracing out patterns, drilling holes, and holding pieces together. We also showed her how to use ban saws and a spindle sander. Kid had a blast. I think she’ll start helping me more with projects at home. She was helping me work on an inlay pattern last night. We stressed to her to never tough the tools without someone there and to always wear her goggles. She must have listened since there wasn’t any blood or missing appendages when class was done.
