Smile Hello everybody from Italy

Like the title says: I live in Italy, in a small town near Neaples. I've just come across the site and really like all the information you give about woodworking. I retired from work last year and now I have all the time to mess around with wood, I always liked wood but did not know I liked doing things with it, so what better place than the net to get all the information to get started with it. I hope you will excuse my english, I lived in the States over 30 years ago and my memory is beginning to fail. In the States I lived in Berwyn ILL. I thank you all for all the information I stole from you already and all the information and help you will surely give me in future.

Welcome aboard. Glad to have you here.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Hello Dominick, my name is dominick too, with such a name you have to have italian blood in your veins. Please tell your uncle to say hello to Berwyn for me, probably next summer I should come for a visit. Thanks for your message.
