The title says it all. I moved to Ridgecrest, CA last July and have been setting up shop in my 2-car garage.
I’m looking for a friend to work with and share skills. I have a local source for wood (mostly 8/4 natural edge figured maple and walnut in the 24”-36” long and 12-18” wide range) and milling.
So if you live in Ridgecrest let me know. Maybe we can meet up some time and share ideas on current projects.

Hello,
Really nice to see someone on the site from Ridgecrest. Maybe we could meet up some day. I’m about to restart the wood shop. I had to take a few miserable years off.

I’m in the process of my shop layout. I just added an 8” jointer and 14” bandsaw. Now I need to make some cabinets and get the dust collection set up for the new machines. So when I get the shop ready and cleaned up lets get together some time.

I came to Ridgecrest in 1959, 4 years in the Navy. I have been on base for 30+ years. I have a woodshop at home but now i”m out of room. I started IWVCLC OR Indian Wells Valley Community Learning Center, or CLC. Open to the Community is a wood shop, metal shop, Ceramic shop, Textile shop (sewing), Computer shop, Robotics shop. and a Store to support the Learning Center. We are very close to opening the doors.
This is a Community Shop, if you live in the Ridgecrest area and would you like to be apart of it, let me know.
Go to IWVCLC.COM

CLC, I am thrilled to see this is opening soon. Please keep me posted and I will check the site regularly. Where will the facility be located? Will you be needing help in the wood shop?

Just moved from Ridgecrest about two years ago. I was there for eight years but finally found a way out, haha. I had my shop there for a few years before moving. There’s not a lot of options for wood in town other than Home Depot. Thought I do miss their selection of redwood. If you pick through the boards you can find some with nice figure. I know a few local woodworkers in the area but none are LJ’s. Not sure where you’re moving from or how familiar you are with the LA area but there’s a real nice lumber store down in Riverside called Reel Lumber I use to use quite a bit. They had a great selection. There’s also a Rockler in Ontario. Both are a couple hour drive but you’re in Ridgecrest now so you better get use to that!

I have accounts with Reel Lumber and Peterman Lumber. Tom at Reel Lumber is a good guy. He asks about my family when I come in to get my sticks.
