    Howdy from the hills of Arkansas (yep, a hillbilly in the flesh)

    Looks like a pretty good site with lots of information. Looking forward to being a contributing member. Consider myself a slightly above beginning woodworker, but I'm eager to learn more. I have a passion for turning but love creating things others can use. Native to the Ozarks of Arkansas with an old tin barn for a shop. I'm "FiatBen" on the Shopsmith forum for those of you who share that passion. I've got a barn full of cherry, walnut and oak and am looking to use it all up before I die.

    Welcome to the clubhouse, Ben. We've got a few other Arkys here (as well as hillbillies from all around the world), so you should fit right in.

    Welcome from another Arkie, I read here a lot but don't post all that much. What part of the hills you in? I'm in the N.E. corner in Randolph county. Always like to get to know another woodworker. I've got a cabinet shop in Pocahontas actually. Welcome, hang out and let yourself be known once in a while.
    I once heard that cats and women will do darn well what they please and that men and dogs would do well to accept it and just go on.

    Welcome Ben !!!!!

    I had a shopsmith for many years and it worked well for me.
    Wish I had a barn full of cherry and walnut. I'd stand there all day just looking and smiling

    Hi Ben and Welcome Aboard.

    I'm sure glad that I'm not going to conk off when my stock of cherry, walnut and oak are gone. I'd be dead in a month or two. Wish I had a big tin barn full of fancy wood and plenty of room to work in. Oh well.

    You will enjoy Family Woodworking even though a few of us are pixilated. It is a great place to get good answers to questions.

    Enjoy,

    JimB
