I am really glad to see so many other women interested in woodworking-I do not know of anyone in my area-southwest Iowa, but I know I love it- I have my own shop and have been doing various forms of woodworking over 3 years, but now am in to larger items such as tables and benches. I make pretty simple things so far for practice purposes, but could sure use some tips on where I might find some woodworking shows in this area. I would love to attend some-most are either west or east. I am pretty much on my own in all of my learning except for shows or books which have helped a great deal. I use all types of tools and am scared most of the time of my table saw, but use it frequently anyway (ha)It is hard when you are a women to know about how to use some of these tools properly or how to set them up. I am just happy to see so many other women interested in woodorking.
