Default And another Ohio guy!

Another Ohio guy here, hello everyone! From the Toledo area,(Bowling Green) and interested in self sufficiency, and do it yourself. Started reading the foxfire books a while back, at first just for old time banjo making instructions, but that got me off, and running and Im trying all kinds of different projects. Currently Im teaching myself soapmaking from scratch, by rendering fat into tallow, and dripping lye from fireplace ash. Ive always been a DIY person. I try not to buy things I can make, and I cant remember the last time I had a car in the shop, but now Im planning on taking it to a different level and exploring alot of the great things I discovered in these books. Hopefully I can be helpful here, and be helped as well. Good to meet everyone!

Welcome from central Ohio.
Jump right in!
Sounds like you are doing things already that I never tried.
