Hello from the SE

Postby borntoyawn » 06 Apr 2021, 09:38

Hello everyone,

I thought it's about time I said hello, I've been lurking here (and there) for a few years.

I moved home a few years ago, and I've finally found time to start building a small workshop in my long, narrow garden. All the advice on here has been very, very helpful. I can't imagine how I'd manage to do it properly without it. Once completed my tools can be rescued from a friends garage.

I'd say I'm still very much a beginner, even though I did a couple of years of part-time furniture making at Moulton College around 8-10 years ago - which if still running I can recommend, if you don't mind mixing with a room full of 3rd year students and apprentices.

Anyway.... Thank you to everyone who makes this place what it is.
