Location: Cape Town, South Africa

I am 34 years old and from Cape Town, South Africa. I have only recently started woodworking as a hobby and would love to have more time working on projects.

Space was always another challenge, but just moved this weekend to a new home with lots of space and for once will not have to move everything out of the garage before i can use the table saw. Can't wait to start unpacking, but the wife still need a few other jobs done around the house before that can happen. But then again i love building and fixing stuff for her. (ok... we are only married for 10 months now)

I don't have many tools yet, but enough to keep me busy and get most jobs done. I still need a lot of practice to up my skill level and am sure to find the tips, tricks and inspiration right here on LJ. I've been visiting the site often the last couple of weeks and decided to join and become part of the community.

Hannes, wives are like that. At least mine is.

Don’t worry the tools will come. I find that when I take a liking to a new one its relatively easy to justify getting it because of the things I could now do with it.

Keep at it and I look forward to your future posts.
