Hi! I'm a retired shopkeeper, my wife and I ran a DIY shop for the last 10 years prior to my retirement, in Dalton in Furness, Cumbria, England.
I've always enjoyed woodwork but it has mainly been stuff around the house, skirtings, dado's, hanging doors etc. But recently I've been quite ill and eventually had a salivary gland removed from my neck and it must have been making me a lot worse that I realised as since having it removed I've had this sudden burst of energy which is very welcome at 75 years of age lol.
Anyway I decided to take up woodworking as a hobby, but making practical things and started after watching many of the youtube videos on woodworking by making a garden bench. I really enjoyed doing it and have since been making lots of jigs to help with projects in the future, I decided I would like to have a go at making a clock and saw one on the net that led me to 'Lumberjocks' and when I've posted the obligatory 5 posts I'm going to ask if I could have the sketch up plans to get me started.
I work from a small garage and it's usually a complete shambles but I'm trying to get a bit more organised.
It's a bit scary looking at the skill of the woodworkers projects I've seen so far but it's also very inspiring and and has given me a lot of enthusiasm, I just can't wait to get started.
Oldstarter or Dave if you like.
P.S. I haven't written all about me 75 years is a long time lol.
