Location: Blue Springs, MO

Retired. Was an accountant, CFO type. Too much computer and report writing. Decided I really wanted to do something with hands so I got into woodworking as a hobby. I did not know it was so expensive. But, I love it. I'm very amateurish but learning, having fun. Lumberjock Karson Morrison got me started. He moved from Delaware to Virginia and I moved from Delaware to Missouri and I maintain contact with others in the Maryland Mason Dixon Woodworkers.

Welcome to LumberJocks. Glad to have you aboard. ☺

Dusty give me an e-mail. I’m in Georgetown. We have a woodworking club in Delmar we meet every other month. January will be our next meeting. We also make toys every Wednesday of the year. We are giving the 2008 toys out This Sat in Delmar.

I enjoyed the meeting… I put the side-tips to use in re-cutting my cherry to prevent burn.. I reduced the burn, but didn’t eliminate. just announced a sale on Freud 10 inch blades. I need to check that out. But, I’ll also accept what I heard in that cherry is susceptible to burn.

I sharpened my plane blades and chisels to prepare for the dovetail workshop Feb 7th. I’ll be there. I’ll pick up Peter and give him a ride. (He’ll show off his fancy new dovetail back saw that he bought for the occasion.) I went to his place and he toured me through his shop. Talk about being intimidated by his work.. and the pictures I see of your shop! I finished my first humble project… and the customer approved, so it must be adequate. I was thinking of posting a picture and a blog about it—lessons learned. I may take it to the March meeting for a name that wood contest?

I have an idea for the club toy projects… I’ll need to talk to you separately about that, later.
