Saskatoon Is In The House...er...forum

Hello from the city that never sleeps (except on weekends, holidays, June thru August and whenever there needs to be snow removal or pot hole repair ).

I've been involved in woodworking for several years and was once an active member with The Saskatchewan Woodworkers Guild. The additional responsibility of three kids and working evenings has resulted in me becoming M.I.A. from the guild. Someday I hope to get started again.

I have a keen interest in hand-powered tools and try to use them whenever possible. The old planes are my favourite. I spent a few summers trying to learn how to use them properly from a pattern-maker friend who was originally trained in Hungary (1930's). Unfortunately he passed away a couple years ago.

Looking forward to participating.

BTW, can't seem to upload an avatar pic. It's in jpeg format and well within the size limits but I keep getting a message that says "this is not a valid image file". Any ideas?

As a newbie, like yourself still feeling my way around.

A lot of snow out your way so I hear this year.

Hope we have a chance to chat on some woodworking in the future.
Have a gret day

Cleaning my glasses will not make me look any better.
But will make what I am looking at better!
