I started woodworking at an early age as my father was a carpenter and I used to play with the left over wood -"making things & helping" !!! I did a woodworking course at school and made a spinning wheel amongst other things. I had a hiatus when I had a family and had many other things to occupy my time. When my only daughter went to school I had some spare time so I took up scroll sawing. My first and second scroll saw were a cheap Ryobi. They were sufficient in the beginning and taught me the basics about the craft however when it started to annoy me when I couldn’t do what I wanted to do I (only recently ) lashed out and bought a new Excaliber! Not only did I buy that I also bought a decent bandsaw.
Now I am really back after a break of a few years and I now have the time and patience to do some serious woodworking – on the weekends anyway.
Since being on LJ's for a while there is just soooooo many things that I want to do. There just isn't enough time!!!
