Default Hi, all!

Just found this forum and haven't really had a chance to look around much yet, but already found one thing I was looking for, so that's a good start.

As to an introduction, I'm in my 50's and female. Been doing woodwork off and on most of my life so far, but would still class myself as "intermediate" at best. Until recently I didn't have anywhere to truly practice and put in the time and attention required to get beyond that. Now, however, I'm a retired trucker with someone willing to help foot the bills, so I have the time and the space and I'm tearing it up.

One aspect of woodwork I do excel at is pyrography (decorative woodburning) and have always been bugged by buying cheap boxes, or kits to do my burning on. Now I'm building my own. My knowledge base is currently very hit-or-miss, but growing daily as I fill in the gaps. I look forward to finding some "gap filling" info here. and. hopefully, sharing some of the bits I have learned, too.

Anyone interested in seeing (or buying) some of my work, visit my website at hapritadesign.com.

Sarah, ladies are welcome to this forum.

For me is hard to understand how a former truck driver can mix woodworking with art.
Only ladies can do that!!!

Your workshop has plenty of tools, as I saw in your profile.

Please, post some pictures about your art.

We, woodworkers are everywhere!!!

Sorry took me so long to respond, but on top of getting ready for Spring shows, I'm taking a computer-programming class three nights a week and PHP is kicking my brain down the road.

Will get pics posted as soon as I can. Though I do have some pics on my website hapritadesign if you don't want to wait. (Won't let me post the url yet, but ...)

As for mixing woodworking with art, is hard for me to understand how anyone can't.

Thanks, all, for the warm welcomes. Things have been crazy busy for me lately, so I haven't really managed to dive in here, but I will.
