Why in the world would I call this part 2 of a post that should have been only one part? Well, if you read my original post, you would had read that the Ms and I decided not to move to Queretaro, Mexico. This is where this post pick up from. It turns out that the Ms. and I are in fact moving to Queretaro, Mexico. While we were there last time, we stayed at an Airbnb, and we became really good friends with the owner. I was chatting with her one day, and she mentioned that she would like for me to come back and teach her woodworking. Well, one thing lead to another and we decided to head back and start a woodworking collective.

I also wanted to give an update about the projects that I had stated in the post that I would be doing this year and updating the list with my new projects. So here I am at on the following…

2016 Blog Post
(from Retooling Part 1)

Finished Projects

A woodworking museum in Sanyi, Taiwan

Wrote up a two part article about this place. Click here to read part 1 and part 2 . If you are interested in winning 15,000 USD, I suggest reading these articles.

I will be updating the forum, schools, clubs and museums pages

Completed Forums for North America and World, Removed Schools & Museums because I do not have enough time to research this, Clubs for North America is just about finished.

Finish My Gringo Workshop part 3 and 4

Finished Part 3. I will be writing Part 4 once I get settled into Queretaro.

Sketchup projects and online course

Purchased this book, but ended up not liking it, because it really was confusing to follow. I found that if I played with the app enough that I could figure out what I wanted to do. That is not to say that I will not use the book as a reference though.

A woodworking school/shop in Taipei, Taiwan

Wrote up an article about this place. Click here read it.

A guitar school here in Bangkok, Thailand

Posted it on my Facebook account.

Work in Progress

Creating a page for listing maker/workshop space

Created the pages for it, but it is a process of looking up the information and I am not sure I will take on the task to complete this one so stay tuned…

Top apps for woodworkers

Will be writing something up soon about this topic.

Update Woodies

Have been updating this just about every other week with new information.

Perhaps create other language dictionaries

Still looking into this… The major problem is trying to find someone who will be willing to do this for free.

Free woodworking magazines/books

Posted somethings on my Facebook, but looking into writing more about this one day…

Decided to Scrap or Not to Complete

A woodworking museum in Ljubljana, Slovenia

Decided not to write anything about this museum.

A woodworking museum and school in Tryavna, Bulgaria

Decided not to write anything about this museum.

New Projects

Add a Vlogging channel, perhaps just for me, but there is a possibility of a collective channel coming
Discussing my workshop space in Queretaro, Mexico
Blogging vs Vlogging – What I have discovered
Writing a post about woodworking clubs
Discussing tools in Mexico and what is the real cost of doing woodworking in Mexico.

Until next time, Keep being creative and be careful!

I have to give a shout out to the following people for allowing me to use their image Travellingotter, M012119, Matt Wynn, Alan Murray-Rust and the last photo is from yours truly. I would like to thank for allow me to join these images into one for free.
