Location: Changsha, China

I've been teaching English in China since 1991. Got married to a beautiful Chinese woman in 1999 and we currently reside in Changsha of Hunan Province.
Over the past 10 years woodworking here has been a rewarding and sometimes frustrating endeavor. You know--needing such and such a tool, but it exists only on the other side of the planet. Postage is a killer. Improvise.
Eventually hope to get some photos of things I've made onto LJs. Would also like to get photos of Asian woodworking posted as well.
I am not computer savvy so it will be a while.
Have really admired the high skills work on display at LJs.

Welcome Jay. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Work safe in the shop and don’t forget to use pushsticks.
