    1st post saying hi

    Mark invited me here from a artist sight.

    I see allot of gifted and talented people here. I thought this might be a nice place to share.

    Let me start off by saying I in no means know everything and I practice at what I do full time. I own an established Refinishing shop. I myself am a Conservator and perservationist but I also do regular refinishing on everyday furniture. I love getting the old period pieces that need someone who knows what there doing to give them life again.

    I have 3 son's all out of the house but my youngest comes home often , He is away at school and is in the 11th grade. Married 28 years. I love Bow hunting , Turkey hunting , art, woodworking, making Flintlocks and all the acutterment that acompany hunting and re-enacting the French Indian war and Rev war. Fishing gets thrown in there somewhere.

    Look farward to meeting ya all.

    Born and raised Just outside DC in Md. a potomac river rat at heart.

    Welcome to the family Dave! We've got another here that enjoys the blackpowder guns, but I'll let him introduce himself. I've got a few in the closent, but haven't had them out in years.

    Dave, ye gotta be one of the good guys. Ye sound like one of my kind of people. We have a couple other reenactors here as well. Welcome to the Family.
    I've been reenacting the Rev. Rifleman since 1976, got a beauty of a rifle. Will post pics sometime for ye to see.

    Your business sounds interesting. I'm sure the guys will be picking your brains for tips.

    Welcome to the family Dave!! Used to own some Black power firearms too at one time. My favorite was a .58 Hawkins. Sold them when I move here. Gun laws and humidity here are killer.
