I am glad I found this site. There is a lot of great info here. I am from Southern Ontario, Canada. Sort of an "Armchair Woodworker" right now. I just had my knee replaced and am in the recovery process right now. My other knee will be done in Jan/Feb of 2011 then I will be good to go again!
I started woodworking when I was 11. I had a jig saw and some lumber and made wooden toys in my Mom's garden shed. 30+ years later I am still dabling in wood. I have every tool under the sun but don't have a shop to put them in right now. My wife has told me when I am off my meds from the surgery, I can set up shop in the basement
. Working outside is for the birds!
I have done quite a bit of carving, made some clocks, cabinets, toys and firewood. I will see what I can scrape up for pics. It has been a number of years since I made anything worthwhile looking at. (before digital cameras).
As stated in a previous message, I am a pro glass artist. 27 years I believe. I started that when I was a teen. I am in the process of designing a hall mirror with some stained glass as accents. I will post the plans when I get them done.
It has been 4 weeks since my surgery and I am anxious to get going again in wood. You guys seem very helpful and have some fantastic ideas. I may just hang around the back row for a while but will offer some input and ideas as suited.
Thanks for having me here!
