Thank you for the invite to sit a spell.
You’ve had quite a journey, thus far, with your woodworking—some wonderful relationships enhanced during the process!

I like the “buy it/make it” statement. I’ve decided, now that Rick and I are playing with wood, that everything in my home will either be an antique from my family or will be handmade by Rick and I.

Looking forward to reading more and I’m glad that you chose LJ to be your “first” blog location

Welcome aboard. You will find that there are a LOT of different people here all with the same past time. It makes for very intertaining conversations, but I have found everyone here to be respectfull, polite and a great many of them faithfilled workers of wood, just like another man we know of. I hope you find us welcoming and your experience here rewarding. Please feel free to ask anything of us and we will do our best to provide our experinces to you.
