I have 3 grownup children, Tracy, Duncan and Megan and a husband called Henry who is my biggest sponser. I started out by sanding down old furniture, I loved the feel of the wood when it was all cleaned up. My first real piece of machinery was a router which Henry bought for me 8 years ago. That has proved to be the most versatile piece of equipment. So having a router, a sanding machine, a ruler and a pencil I made my first project. It started out by being a wine rack but when it was finished it looked so insignificant that I built a whole cabinet and inserted the wine rack inside (photo to follow). When I had finished this cabinet Henry bought me a table saw which I didnt like because it wasnt a good quality and to me wasnt safe. So after much debate I got a Festool plunge saw and Festool table. For birthdays, anniversaries and Mother's day the children & my dear Mother who sadly passed away 3 weeks ago, buy sand paper for gifts for me, I inturn make them furniture. Oh yes Ive got the Festool RO 150 sanding machine (the sand paper is rather pricey). I have made a lot of bookshelves for all the woodworking books. My work shop is complete I have all that I need only thing I have found out, you can never have enough clamps and hands.
