Im 53 years old and semi retired due to a back injury, I fell off a roof breaking three ribs and damaging my sternum and shoulder blade. I served my time as a fabricator/welder as soon as i left school aged 16, however working with would was in my blood so i decided to switch trades when i was 23 and then served my time as a carpenter/joiner with my father who was a self employed carpenter/joiner for over 40 years, and am as adept working with metal as i am with wood. I started making models after finding making toys (for my kids) not challenging enough. I am a self taught designer of wood products and an adept draughtsman also self taught, my ambition was to write a book similar to the ones i was learning from in my early years, this I have achieved after working with wood for 30 years

Welcome. 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.

Yeah, falling off a roof is always a drag. Nasty business that I’ll never look back at.
Anyway, good to see ya here.
