  1. I grew up in Houston, actually Bellaire long before it became gentrified. Where in Houston do you live?
  2. Thank you. I'm a self taught hobbiest who acquired a very nice shop over the last 40 plus years. When I retired I intended to make a little money building furniture and hardwood counter tops but I ended up building furniture at a very consistent loss for my family, friends and church. Oh well, it makes my wife accept some of my shortcomings. I like to build beds and tables but I've built tv consoles, counter tops, cabinets and lots of other stuff except I've never built a chair. My last couple of projects were a copy of The Railroad Barons bed built in walnut, a live edge walnut sofa table and three tables on pipe frames with casters for my church. I'm just starting a river table with glass insert from a cherry slab that is about 24" by 96" by 2 1/4". In my shop I have 54" (?) 5hp Jet cabinet table saw, 20" Powermatic planer, 8"Grizzly jointer, Delta bandsaw, 12" Dewalt compound miter, Jet drill press, 3 1/2 hp router table , 50"Woodmaster sander and 4 vac systems. I've also got a 16" jointer that was built in around 1860 that was originally water or steam powered that I haven't finished refurbishing.The tools are better than the woodworker. I'm slow but I still have all my fingers.
  3. I appreciate the response and very excited to join the forum although I don't have much knowledge to offer.
  4. I just found this forum and joined today. I live on the Cumberland plateau and I gather relatively close to you and other members. Do you have kiln dried local hardwoods for sale? Thanks
