    Hi all.

    I was directed to this forum by a certain moderator that has a species of tree as part of his name. Im looking forward to learning from others experiences. I have a 24 x 24 pole barn that I am converting into a wood shop this spring.

    I completed my first project this past summer which was a triple level bunk bed for a 3 year old who didnt have a bed. The top two levels are for storage because the reason she didnt have a bed is that they didnt have any room.

    This was my first experience with mortices, tenons and plain ordinary straight cutting. Imagine that. Things go together much better when the parts are straight. Who would have thunk it?

    My plan is to make all the furniture in my house. Good thing I like simple designs.

    Feel free to say hi.

    Welcome Kevin. It was sure swell of ole Billy Birch to refer you on over the the forum. Or was it Walter Walnut? No? Hmmmm . . . OK, it must've been Steve . . . I promise we will not hold that against you. Welcome aboard!

    Welcome Kevin

    You'll enjoy it here. One of the rules is you have to post pics, or your stay will be short lived.

    My initiation - A pic to seal the deal.

    Here is a pic of my very first woodworking project from this past summer. The top two levels are for storage and the bottom level is for sleeping. Or the little girl can have two friends stay over. If they can find a ladder big enough.

    Hey Kevin, welcome to the Family!

    Nice work on the bed, and don't worry, we won't hold your association with the Ashman against you

    Cheers!
