It’s been a while since I posted here, in fact I’ve moved house since then (twice). I am currently training as a welder/fabricator so I am familiar with a variety of power tools and machines. I am looking for someone near where I live who has a workshop or even just a garage with the right stuff who can show me the ropes of woodworking and in return for letting me share their space I would help them when they needed it. I’m keen on making things out of wood for my own home, and see no reason why I shouldn’t utilise my ability to work with my hands! I live in the north of Hampshire, UK. I don’t know how else to go about finding a mentor but I would greatly appreciate any help, thanks :)

welcome back (again). if you were in NEW Hampshire (US) you could have stopped by my place. ;)

good action on your part trying to find someone local to help out. I hope you end up finding just that.

Cheers Purp. I’ve had so much going on in life, with university and all, I haven’t really had the opportunity to have my own creative time. But now that my job finishes, generally, at 4:30pm there’s a lot more time in the day!

Have your say...
