I am a retired scientist. I live in Pune, a renowned city in India for its educational institutes. After retirement I am teaching yoga to about 150 persons,male and female. That keeps me in good health to persue my hobbies, one of which is woodworking. I was born in Burma and my father, uncle and cousin inculcated the hobby in me. Burma is famous for its teak and that is how carpentry has become a family past time. I certainly lack in sophisticated tools for enjoying this hobby but that makes me put my best skills in making a project but at the cost of time!
We have variety of woods to experiment with, along with local variety of teak. I am in search of lot of knowledge about woodworking and I am happy that Lumberjocks forum is providing me with it. I am thankful to to all members who are displaying their projects and giving me new ideas. I am new to this type of blogs and may need your help at times. Wishing all of you a happy and prosperous new year

It may take a little while before I send my work. Pl bear with me. I am a hobbyist. So far I have made a dozen foldable chairs (These are known as deck chairs to the best of my knowledge and I could see them as lineman’s chairs while watching French Open Tennis Tournaments) half a dozen Dinning Tables. a couple of cabinets and many other small items. I don’t like wasting wood scraps and use them for making useful articles like penstands or spoon holders. I don’t have sophistikated tools and have to use my skills most of the time. I find your forum very informative and interesting. Thank you

A very precise picture of a deck chair similar to what I made can be seen on Google search for Deckchairs UK
It is a very comfortable chair

I have no words to praise you for the construction of the box. It is superb. Hope I will learn your skill.
