Hello..

Postby Kimtins » 31 Aug 2018, 17:28

I joined the forum today as I'm an avid fiddler, not the musical kind but the kind that likes a project and a challenge and I also hate the modern waste culture.

My father was a builder and as a child my happy place was his workshop where I would saw and nail with glee.

Despite being told to 'get someone in' I will attempt anything around the home and this has now lead to my hobbiest interest in all things wood, I am currently driving my partner mad trying to perfect hand cut joints.

I should perhaps mention I am a lady and past the age where a career change is in order so it is all DIY and hobby for me, I also have a for of rheumatism that makes my hands freeze up so am constantly on the lookout for an 'easier' way of doing things but the time I spend in my little shed is the best part of my week so I look forward to seeing all the amazing projects you undertake and learning from you all where I'm going wrong.

Kim

And a warm welcome from me too. As Mike says we love photos around here so don't be shy and show us any projects old or new. There are plenty of knowledgable folks here who can offer help and guidance on just about anything.
cheers

Andy

if images are not visible on my posts it is because Photobucket withdrew their free hosting service. I will reload images to the most recent threads in due course. Please drop me a PM if you would like to see anything before then

Hello and welcome :)

Don't think I have rheumatic problems but my elbows complain at most hand tool use so I have developed an aversion to hand tools. Damage done during my working life. Machines all the way for me.

Look forward to seeing your hand cut joinery.

Welcome and ditto to what the others have already said.

I have some rheumatism/arthritis in the fingers and struggle with very small stuff.

I've long believed that the forum software should default to new members getting email notifications whenever their posts are replied to. But this was not feasible iirc.

Whilst I welcome the new lady member to our esteemed t'interweb establishment, the arrival of email notifications would personally cause me to a) forgo WH2 in it's entirety and/or b) throw a moderately sized house brick through the monitor screen. Probably the latter - Rob

For some reason or other, I get notifications for all the posts in WH2.
I must have accidentally set it up??
There’s not that many, so not annoying so far

Yep you will have set it up by accident. Log into the website version, look in your User Control Panel and the setting will be in there.
