    Hello from West Texas

    Hello everyone,
    I am happy to be a member here and looking forward to learning from everyone.
    I have been woodworking as long as I can remember. Started helping my dad around the house and learned most of what I know from him or just learning as I go.
    I haven't really done much woodworking the last 2 years as my focus changed to rebuilding my truck; it isn't done but I really want to get back to making sawdust. Right now I plan on making a pendulum cradle and a jewelry box in the next couple of months. I don't usually work too fast but try to do my best.

    Here are some examples of some stuff I have made over the last 8 years or so; let me know what ya'll think.

    My first square bowl (poplar) and Acorns (Christmas ornaments)


    Maple bowl


    Maple and Jatoba Mirror


    Willow and Bloodwood frame


    Red Oak Rocking Chair

    Welcome to the clubhouse, Michael. That's some nice-looking work. I especially like the mirror.
