    We have quite a bit of experience between the members here, a good group of people with lots of skills and knowledge. I think you will fit in just fine!

    Which skills would you like to improve upon most?

    Guess I'm mighty slow at responding,to what skills I want to improve on. I need/want to improve all skills that I already have. Cooking, carpentry, wood working, landscaping, gardening, home canning ,etc etc. Plus I need to learn how to do things, that they did in the 1800's.like log homes and wagons, blacksmithing.

    Only improvements so far.is cooking and canning.i have a set of L shaped home made shelves,in which i built a fews ago.they stick out,to far from the wall,where i now live.so i'll be getting the needed lumber,to redesign them when i get the chance.hopefully i'll be doing 2 things at once when i do.1st.redoing them where they don't stick out to far.2nd.im hoping that'll add extra shelf space at the same time .

    Don't forget the pencil! Haha.

    And the old rule to live by. Measure twice. Cut once.
