Location: Ottawa, ON, Canada, K2E

I first dabbled with some raw wood in the early 1980s. My complete lack of success prompted me to give that up for a while. Then, around 1990, I started scroll-sawing small pieces for a local tole painter. This I was good at, and it started me on my way. After several geographic moves and 3 different dedicated workshops, I moved to Germany for 4 years. While there, my tools went into long-term storage. Upon moving back to Canada, I was in a city about 1400 km (8-900 miles) from my tools, living in a place without any space for a shop, and unsure about how long I would be staying.

6 years later and I'm now living in a house that I know I will be staying in for a long time and where I will be building a workshop. So after a decade-long hiatus from woodworking; the crude projects that I've recently started doing feel good.

I've just returned from bringing my tools home; I hadn't even seen my contractor's saw in 10 years. The first major project after getting these tools home was to find a place to store them until I build my new workshop next year (summer 2014). Until then, I'm devoting my energies to planning the new shop and gathering the required materials.
