In advance sorry my bad English , I write whit dictionary.

isetegija in Estonian language its person who make things by himself.

I worked in a small firm building custom furniture until in 2000 we were consumed by larger firm.
Unfortunately I didn’t hawed camera back then , I was making beautiful projects.
Our new company started making small wooden mill baulk garden houses :

what have nothing to do whit fine woodworking.
I was to lazy to search for a new job so I have ben glazing doors and windows since then.

Now I found and have seen so many beautiful things , my hands started to tingle to make
something nice from wood again. And maybe earn some extra mony in this difficult time.

My other hobby is computer and all related .
Recently I started building my website:

there I have all photos of my works that I have.

Welcome Allan,

After what you said, without any doubt you’ll find yourself at home here. And don’t worry about your English, not only you are easy to understand but, also, there is people from all over the world in this community. We all speak the same language: wood.

I hope your hands will tingle enough to make you start making those beautiful projects again. Please, if you do, share them here with us all.

Now start browsing through the enormous library of projects and enjoy yourself!

Welcome Allan! Your post is actually better English than a few people I know who were born in English speaking countries can do!

I’m looking forward to seeing your projects.
