Location: Northeastern Ca.

My name is Allison and I live in a little mountain town in northeastern Ca. I found woodworking and my subsequent love for it quite by accident, literally. I had broken my knee and could not go anywhere and a friend brought home a scroll saw to try so I would have something to do. He showed me how to use it and I have been hooked ever since! That broken knee occurred on Jan. 11th 2005, so I am coming up on my 3rd year . I have had a million trials and a million more errors and have enjoyed learning from everyone of them. I have tried different forms of woodworking and found my biggest passion to be intarsia. I prefer to not use any paint or stain on my projects and love the challenge of finding the right color for the project in the natural wood itself. In Jan of 2007 I was given a computer and have been learning it with a LOT of help from nice people here in cyberspace. I sure am excited about joining this community of woodworking enthusiasts and sure could use perhaps someone to show me around. Believe it or not I found this site just now also quite by accident, literally! Thank You

I just popped over to your site. Really nice work. Did not know that intarsia existed until recently. I really like the rooster.

Well, Well, Well, I have just learned about bolding, and now the subsequent shouting! So to all my new hopefully friends here at LJ’s let’s have a great big laugh on me. I am not saying this sarcastically I mean it. Good God no-one has ever told me about all this before. I personally can’t quit laughing myself as my other blog has something like 94 posts and I am YELLING in everyone of them . Oh my word this is funny. So on this New Years Day please allow me to provide the laughs!!! Peace!!! I sure am glad I was told this. And I will promise to be a little quieter from now on. Smile!!! It’s free and on me! Allison
