Hello LJ’s,

Last week I started my own blog with the help of blogger.com
I also wanted to do something like this to come in contact with more woodworkers. It also comes in handy when people want to know what i make. Now I can tell them to visit the blog and they can read all about it.

The language is dutch because that’s easiest for me to write in. I’ve build an a translator and I want to know what you guys/girls think about my first setup.

All comments are very welcome and feel free to join the blog.

It’s called :

http://thewoodworkersattic.blogspot.com/

That’s because my shop in in the attic.

Thanks for looking and all the comments

Rick

Rick, Your workshop space is very unique. I liked the blog too. Those planes you restored are really well done.

I think you are doing a very nice job on the blog. Thank you for sharing your work, methodology, and talents. I was attracted to your segmented turning. I thought the process was much more complicated. I have some birdseye maple and purple heart that might make a combination. I also appreciate the translator. The translation from Dutch to English is excellent.
Thanks again.

Hey
You click on the translator and you select your language
What happends then is that the translator starts translating the whole page
I hope that helped you.
I’m glad you like my cuttingboard
Gave it to my mother and she loves it.
She uses it often

The translator button has some problems with Internet Explorer, Firefox has no problems.

My blog has been fun to do and I’ll keep on posting new blogs on it. It’s fun to see that people visit my blog on a regular base and even try to make some projects themselves. This feels like a big honour.

Now back to the workshop!!!
