Hello All

Postby marineboy » 08 Aug 2018, 14:12

I’ve been a member of UKW for a bit ((and very good it is too) but I was directed here by a link to MikeG’s house renovation thread and I have just read all 114 pages of it. I know all the superlatives about Mike have been repeated many times so I won’t take up space adding more. Suffice it to say the man is a god.

For myself I am something of a bodger. My biggest project to date has been making and fitting new drawers and doors to the existing base unit and cupboard carcases in my kitchen (only ply and routed MDF I’m afraid, but I, and more importantly SWMBO, am happy with it. I’ve also replaced the staircase spindles in my Victorian house and added internal insulation to most of the walls. I’ve also had a go at box making, and hopefully starting to improve. And I’ve lost count of the bits of furniture I have repurposed as our children have grown and left home.

I’m looking forward to picking the brains of the members here, and possibly even contributing some opinions and ideas of my own.

Thanks Roger. I have made my first boo boo - didn't realise that my first post had to be cleared by a mod so thought I'd lost it and reposted. So please ignore it if it appears again!

Hi Nick,

Welcome from Mid-Devon.

Yes, that man is on a par with Eric Clapton! It was his threads and advice that gave me the confidence to build my own 'shop!.
