Hi fellow lumberjocks! Thanks for the welcome. I have finally started my first blog after a long procrastination, you can find it at “”. I am planing to put all manner of things on there but what you will see here is mostly the wood related posts, hopefully with weekly updates. In this country its difficult to find the kind of information that makes life just that much easier for all of us , so this site has been a blessing. Magazines turn up here infrequently and even then are months or years out of date, so scouring the net has been my only option as I dont have a credit card to pay for subscriptions. Hardware store are a bit of a joke as they all carry the same cheap chinese made stock and even Stanley only sells the basics. You can buy De Walt and Bosch but dont expect to find tooling for your router unless you import it from Singapore or somewhere else. So getting tooled up is a challenge to say the least, but its possible to get the basics and you can always make your own which is what I will end up doing,like this guy below
Yes its made of bamboo! Who says you need the latest and greatest to do this stuff. I have plenty more images and stories from the Philippines to share so stay posted.

I assume you have plenty of geckos to keep you company. Spent time there in 1967 and always had the little critters around.
