I'm not sure if this is where I introduce myself, but here goes. I am a retired banker from North Vancouver, B.C., Canada, who has dabbled with woodworking all my life. I retired 9 years ago and have been more earnest about my projects since then. I've done lots of fence building, framing etc. with the odd piece of furniture thrown in for good measure. A few years ago I purchased a lathe and make pens etc. for friends/family. I actually have taken up writing full time and now the wood shop is my hobby; one that I struggle with unfortunately. My Dad recently passed at the age of 98 and left me an almost complete Beaver Lodge. It's old equipment and I seem to spend more time repairing it than using it, but that can be satisfying too. Right now I'm building a wagon for my granddaughter. Anyway, I'm looking forward to entering into the odd discussion. Thanks and all the best to you all.
