i live in texas...
i spell badly, on purpose...
but most folks spell it b-a-d-l-y...

i have this habit, and if i shave real well, no one can tell that i'm NOT a nun...

i started woodworking in the early eighties with a craftsman scrollsaw...
added a dinky bandsaw, then a table saw...
i got REAL excited when my dad gave me a toy i did not know he had, a monkey wards lathe...
that's right, montgomery wards made a cheapo lathe...
i wuz hooked...
four years of frustration later and i bought a lil grizzly lathe...
tha difference wuz like night and day and my work improved dramatically...
fast forward ten years to february of 2009...
i bought a powermatic 3520b...

i can make firewood outta nice lumber so fast it will "turn" yer head...

HA!!!

-- rookie ...we'll see what happens...

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
