Location: Reserve, NM

I am a 59 year old having returned back homel and have access to an abundance of ponderosa pine lumber that I enjoy creating wood art out of. I have recently slabbed approximately 2000 brd/ft. of blue stain that I plan on creating different pieces with. I am a novice at intarsia but I am really enjoying it. I just ordered my first flap sander and band saw. I have been using my trusty old scroll saw and vertical sander and they have been working fine but I plan on taking my work to a different level. I recently finished a piece and will post it I hope everyone likes the design.

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

Reserve, NM is in the southwestern part of the state right in a little place called the GILA WILDERNESS. The Gila is the first area proclaimed a wilderness by Aldo Leopold. We are 3 hrs. southwest of Albuquerque, 1 hr. north of Silver City and 30 minutes from the Arizona border. I used to be the Plant Manager in Espanola at the sawmill site. Come visit us some day.
