Looks like you did a great job, but larger and more photographs plus more details would be nice.

Thanks everybody. I’ll get better pictures and add a few more projects soon. Looking forward to being a part of your group.
By the way, the cherry has darkened a lot since the picture was taken. Really looks a lot better today.

Wow! We use to live in Rockingham and the wife grew up in Pine Bluff.

Wish we had known you were there 7 years ago. I have a number of friends in the area that either do wood working or have mills, one even makes beautiful veneers and sells pretty cheap.

Tell me about the college course. We may be moving back to the area and I’m always willing to learn!

It’s a 2 year associate degree program and it’s one of the best I’ve seen. It will teach you all the basics. The first 6 months was working with hand tools. The rest is with machinery. The program includes turning, working green wood while making a windsor chair, drafting, jointery, designing, etc. It’s a very in-depth program and highly recommended. If you’re ever in Rockingham you ought to go by and check it out. Mike Quinn is the instructor and he’s very good.
