Dear Forum

I have been reading into the forum for quite some time now and could not wait any longer to join you all in, what has to be one the best forums on the net today.

I have been milling for several years now, with my own home made contraptions, firstly to obtain lumber that was not commercially available for making certain items for my musical instruments, in the guise of the Irish or Uilleann bagpipes.
I have rescued many large logs from Holly to Laburnham and wild cherry, which would have been left to rot where they fell, my main hobby over the last twenty year or so, has been anything connected and to do with milling and timber.

I have contacted the moderator Jeff B, who has kindly permitted me to introduce my busnesses bagpipes and chainsaw mills to the forum in my first posting, here is what he said.

We welcome you to introduce yourself in a new thread!  The Forestry Forum does not allow advertising but we do help promote forum sponsors as you may have noticed on the left side of the forum pages.  You have my permission to list your web address's in that first post as reference to who you are and what you do and we look forward to your posting photos in your Forestry Forum gallery and in your posts. There are some pretty good instructions on that here: http://www.forestryforum.com/board/index.php?topic=12416.0 .  The Forum members will welcome you I can guarantee so long as your first post is that of an introduction and not an ad.

I have in the last year or so, I have taken my home made contraptions to another level and using my skills as a trained engineer, I have made all of my own equipment for turning and cutting, I am situated in the tiny market town of Richmond, which lies at the centre of the Yorkshire Dales National park, in North Yorkshire, England, www.richmond.org

You can see what I have been up to in these links below, I have so many question I would like to ask you all and will be glad to give the same back, looking forward to joining in, all the best.

 Welcome to the Forum. Don't care for the Pipe music, but, appreciate the craftsmanship. Nice work.  ;D

Hi All

A great big thank you to everyone for the very warm welcome, I really like what I see and hear at this place, I'm just working out how to post some milling pictures and I will send some soon.
I'm mlling some large Yew, Cherry and Douglas next week and will add a few to the photo gallery as I convert them.
Are there any wood turners out there, or any chair makers ?.

Cheers
Davy.

Welcome to the forum.

There are a lot of turners; Patty,Burlkraft,Katiedid,quartlow,chet? just for starters off the top of my head.

Welcome to the forum, Davy.   ;)

Lots of turners here, as well as other instrument makers. 

Banjo pluckers tend to be a bit biased in their music interpretataions.  :D

I used to like pipes above most anything.  Guess maybe I've had to carry one or two too many friends to them over the years to like them as I once did.

Beautiful work, by the way.

And there are a enough  southern boys and girls here to off set all that damyankee foolishness, welcome to the board from a Texan. 8)

I turn some, but mostly make doors and windows.  About those pipes, I served with some Brit troopers in Germany, and the last sound to be heard when they throw dirt in my face will be "Amazing Grace", played be a single piper.
