Topic tags/keywords: question

I was just wondering how many LJ,s from TN. were on here. I see a lot from Texas and Kal-e-fornea. Maybe if there are enough we could have a get together sometime?? I’m from Livingston, (actually a little wide spot called Okalona—-hence OKwoodshop) dp

I’m from Delaware, a little east of you, betwen the two big bodies of water.

I hope you find some WoodWorking buddies. Go to this link it is a pushpin of all LumberJocks that have setup a workshop on thier profile.

You can zoom in and see who has setup a workshop in your area.

Good Luck

This is also a good idea for everyone to set up a workshop if only to get your name on the map. You also need to give a general address (City, State)

Above the map is a button called List View. It give you a list of all LumberJocks and their address. I see a couple that just have TN and so they don’t have a push pin on the map.

I just noticed something else. There are 13 pages of woorkshop in the push pin view. My workshop is in the 13th view. Meaning I probably set up my workshop in the early stages fo this web site, The find all of the pushpins for Tenn. You will need to look at all of the pages and then zoom in to your state.

THanks for the info. I haven’t taken pics of my shop yet so haven’t put it in. Will have to get this done.

I am not far from you at all. I live in Smithville Right next to the Warren and DeKalb county line. I work not far from you in Cookeville close to the HS there. I want to get out your way one weekend to check out the Flea Market on 111. I rebuild old woodworking tools as a hobby and want to see what I can find out that way. I looked through your pictures and noticed you make rocking horses. Are you the fellow who comes to the Smithville Jamboree and sells them? There use to be a fellow who made them in Sparta .
