                New here as well and certainly finding a lot of good advice. Hope to see some of your work soon. Seems like the sign near Ranger NC says something like 450 miles to Manteo-which part of the huge state?

                    I'm in the piedmont. Between Winston Salem and Statesville.

                    And definitely reading all I can, trying to absorb as much info as I can. So far I've just done a couple chicken stick like Doug Linkers tutorials. Also one little flower. Picked up some acrylic paints yesterday to do some finishing work. Also picked up a lot of nice juniper pieces yesterday at work that I'm going to try some spoons or pickle forks. And one great piece for a ladle.

                      Nice start and we all begin at someplace. When I first started I tried to dive right in and it was frustrating. I had to back up to the basics. So much to learn from sharpening, understanding chisels/knives, paints, finishes, etc. Best to start slowly.

                      Doug, Gene Messer, and Vladimir are great tutors.
