My name is Brian and i am very new to this. I have posted a couple of pics on the projects showcase of a crib i have built for my new Grandson Issac.
I am just getting back into woodworking after a bit of a break, due to work and family commitments. I have built myself a small workshop in my garden and i am now trying to kit it out, ohh what fun that is, having to go to the tools shop every month to purchase a new item
I have just purchased my first ever lathe and i am having fun learning to turn wood, and making loads of shavings
and lots of mistakes
. But is good fun, when i am not swearing
I trained as a carpenter in my younger days but somehow ended up being a security engineer, so have a varied past. I have always loved woodwork and DIY so this is just an extension of that.
My wife is into papercraft and has her own room in the house for this, so i decided that if i built a wookshop i could have my own space, if you cant beat em join em
I live in Essex, UK about 35miles from London, where i work during the week, but my heart is always at home in my shop.
Well thats a little bit about me.
Love the site and i am learning soooooo much.
