Welcome hackberry jake to the FF. You say west of Fayettville and I looked on google and I see St. Paul as being east on hwy 16. Am I lost? I lived in Benton Co. for 35 yrs. Like your photos. What are you using the cedar poles for? bg

I can see you're going to fit in real well around here Jake. Great pictures. Can we see more of the router lathe and how that's laid out/works. That walnut table is awesome. Looks great.

Jake, you're doing exactly what I plan to do. Is that on your own property?

yes the building is on my land. most of the lumber i saw comes from blown over trees or ones that are just in the way. they come mainly from my fathers and grandfathers land. neighbors give me quite a bit as well. there is always a tree that someone wants out of the way. i get a few from the river. the floods bring me a new batch every year. there is currently a problem with trees shading our garden too much so this winter i am going to take down dozens from around the garden. I think there is no "trash wood". every species has a use. I will post some more pics of the router lathe prolly tomorrow some time. It spins the stock really slow while a router runs down the side taking off material. I saw it on craigslist and bought it for a steal. it wasnt working at the moment and came with everthing to get it running... on three phase... i dont have three phase so i converted everything over to run on single phase. There are still a few tweaks i would like to make to it, but overall i am really pleased with the final product. Thanks so much for all the welcomings!

Hey Jake I know where St. Paul is.  Lots of logging, sawmills, and the best canoe rivers in the whole USA start there. 8) 8) 8)  I live just down the mountain a bit, cross the creek in Nob Hill on Beaver Lake.

Welcome to the FF...I think you will like it here.
