Hello, fellow people of earth.  I wanted to introduce myself here as I just joined this wonderful forum and wanted to give some background about myself.  My name is Mike Hendershot and I live in Rhode Island, in the Warwick area.  I have a woodworking shop at a 160 acre farm in the area and we have been getting involved in woodland care and management over the past several months.  A good friend of mine who is also a forum member here, Gorillajets, is currently partnering with me in the work.  We aim to learn as much as we can in all areas, both ecologically and technically.  At the ripe young age of 28 going on 29 I have a ton of energy and try to have the best focus I can on my work. 
I love old hand tools, woodworking with my hand tools, splitting firewood, creating products, learning everything I can. I own a wood products & woodworking company that does a wide range of things, I will share that more as time goes on.   Basketball, ping pong and golf are my recreational sports/games of choice. 
I hope to learn a ton on this forum as I have done with other forums I have become a member in.  I will also contribute where I can and the areas I have knowledge...if that ever comes up.  Thanks in advance for having me as a member of the forum.

Since you are jumping into the woodland care forum, maybe you have some pics of some of your work?

as with Paul I would like to see some of your work..I love to work with wood and with my hands as well..i tend to be a LESS finished carpenter..but i get it up and done..and most of my woodworking has been rough fencing, arbors, trellising etc..but i have also built additions to homes, garages, sheds, etc..and remodeled 2 large homes in the past..mostly by myself.

i'm older now so i'm keeping most of my woodworking to rough stuff in my yard and property..but still enjoy it when i can find the time to do it..plan to rebuild a 480 square foot deck with a clothesline this spring if i can swing the $ and am redoing a garden with fences, raised beds, arbors and such right now..also need to build a shelter for our tractor
This guy is skipping without a rope. At least, that's what this tiny ad said:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
