Glad to be here

Hi I'm Brian from just North of Toronto - I just started hobby woodworking just before the winter. It has been a long winter as my shop is in the unheated garage and in the last few months I have had a project stain badly (too cold I guess) had my wood glue freeze (i keep it inside now!) and have had to sit inside burning my scraps when it is just too cold to go out there. Today it is above freezing and I'm counting the minutes until the end of the work day - when I will go out and continue my current project (a cabinet of cedar lined drawers for our linen closet). I'm about to graduate from Home Depot pine and ply and currently have a order in for walnut at the local mill - which I'm very excited about - it cost a lot of money and had to pay to have it plained - so doing lots of research on how to finish walnut and ended up here. I wish I had found you all about 6 months ago as I tend to learn things the hard way!

Welcome aboard. I too work in an unheated garage so know just what you mean. I'm fortunate to have a very large basement, all mine, in which to do gluing and finishing but winters are still a drag.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

I built my shop in there last year and really was not thinking - I should have instulated the outside walls before I built my shelves in - i did manage to build a stand for second set of tires and all the bikes so I guess I have what you would call a small shop that serves a number of other purposes. It is probably more of a storage space that I have managed to organize to squeeze in some portable tools!

I get by but I sure do dream about someday having a dedicated (Heated) space with a dust collector and the ability to move around! That being said I'm just happy to have some where to work, create and learn the craft. It thrills me that I can tap into your expertise and knowledge as I have a ton to learn (but the rest of my life to learn it!) Like I said before I tend to learn the hard way and really I think the most important lesson I've lerned thus far is "patience".

Welcome penman! This group is great, at first I felt a bit intimidated by all the wonderful things they all build and post - but then realized that you have to start somewhere !! What better place then picking the brains of guys(and gals) this talented!
