Hello to all ...

Been meaning to find such a forum for a while, but learning internet technology takes me even longer than developing woodworking skills.

I've been making things in wood since about 1996 when I started collecting some tools and developing my workshop. These have included allsorts from treen to furniture as well as the usually less interesting - but somehow inevitable - DIY stuff such as kitchen fitting, etc.

Since being made redundant from my office job last year, I've been trying to make a living as a joiner, but this so far only partially successful (not enough work!)

A joiner, colloquially referred to as a 'chippie', is like a carpenter, but fits on site rather than builds in the shop, eg hangs doors, fits skirting board, etc. You must call them by something else.
