Thread: Hello from Kansas City, MO

  1. #1

    Hello from Kansas City, MO

    Hello, my name is Austin I'm out of Kansas City, on the Missouri side. Transplanted there about 30 years ago just before I got married.

    I just found this place, or was refered to it from a gentleman on another forum. I had mentioned box making and how I wanted to get into that type of work. I've been a turner for about 7 years making a variety of things, salt/pepper mills, pens, martial arts items, and just moved over into some limited flat work. I've always been a fan of nice wood boxes and so that's my next venture, I hoped I may be able to find some guidance here.

    I look forward to picking your collective brains, thanks for having me.

    Austin

    Welcome Austin,

    Nice to meet you. Greetings from Vancouver Island where it's raining. I'm sure you'll find lots of experienced folks here (not me) that are happy to help. Post lots of pictures, everyone loves pictures!

    Welcome Austin, this is a great place to hang out! Lots of good knowledgeable people here. Wood boxes you say?????? Well there seems to be a good amount in them here. In fact we just started a friendly box swap project. You just missed the cut off date for it but you will be able to see the results of it in a few weeks when they are all done. I myself am new to them too so many of us will enjoy them along with you.
    Welcome
