Hi all -
I just wanted to introduce myself. I replied to a blog entry first and now I’m backtracking to fill in some info. First things first, I want to say hi, and look forward to pouring over this forum and meeting some great people.

I’m right in the middle of building my first shop and I’m slowly building up my tools. I’ll post some photos of my space soon.

Best to everyone and see you around LJ.
Cheers -

Hi guy. Welcome to the nut house, home to wood addicts of all sorts.

You’ll find a lot of fellow Canucks around here, from your own west coast province to a lovelt lady from down east who’s a whiz with a scroll saw. Yours truly is an ex Ontarian living in chilly Winnipeg for the last 35 years.

In addition to us Canadians, there are folks from every corner of the globe here. We even have a guy who does some mind blowing gilding who lives in Iran. There’s a guy from down under who does some of the wildest cutting boards you’ve ever seen. I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea.

No matter what kind of wood working you want to do, there are folks here who are great at it and willing to help you do it better. You would have to prowl the net for a lifetime to find a better place to hang out.

Looking forward to seeing more from you.
