    Re: NC transplant and new woodworker

    Welcome Boomer.

    Reading through this thread, you can already see the value of NCWW: WWers close to you share their sources (and there are several in your general area) and often offer assistance when you need physical help - cold beverages are often the only inducement necessary.

    Finding a workable BS in the scrap yard is a first as far as I have heard. I am jealous (also assuming it was much cheaper than retail).

    Keep us up to date (with pics - I see you already know how to do that!) on your shop set-up and projects. Many of us really appreciate work-in-progress pics as they can be so much more informative than just a finished project pic.

    Welcome aboard.
    Henry W
    Prolific creator of sawdust, and sometimes shavings - with the occasional completed project.

  2. The following 2 users say Thank You to Henry W :

    Re: NC transplant and new woodworker

    Welcome to our sawdust pile Boomer! Rick Denardi in Huntersville is #1! He has been very supportive, and is very supportive of NCWW. Stop in and get to know him.
    Experience is a hard teacher; she gives the test first, and the lesson later.

    Re: NC transplant and new woodworker

    Welcome to NC Boomer. If you make it through our humid summer, you'll enjoy our fall, winter and spring. Have a tennis buddy that moved here from Boston couple years ago. He liked to take pics of us in mid winter, beer in hand, wearing shorts, sweaty just after completing a match, and sending them back to his old buddies in Beantown just to make them jealous.

    The Woodworking Source in Mooresville is a great place to buy quality lumber.

    This... and welcome to NCWW, Boomer.
    The thing that holds up all my woodworking is simply getting started.

    Great deal on the saw. Welcome. I'm just up the road at the north end of Lake Norman. Several good shops in the area, Rick's place in Mooresville, Klingspor in Hickory, West Penn in Conover.
    No job is worth doing unless you can get a new tool out of it.

    Welcome neighbor! Just down 73 if you need any help. Kyle Edwards in Iron Station is another good source of hardwood.

    Re: NC transplant and new woodworker

    Thank you for all the connections. I've never built anything out of anything other than cheap pine boards and some oak lumber from Lowes. What is usually the "go to" project for someone just beginning with other hardwoods?
