Hi everyone, just signed up and this is my first post and though I’d introduce myself and maybe get a little advice as well. My names Barry, just getting back into doing some woodworking again after around a 4 year layoff. I was a workshop joiner here in Ireland when I left school at 16 until the company I worked for went bust around 4 years later. Since then I literally haven’t done a single pice of woodwork. Although I’m not quite a newbie to the business, myself, and my tools, are a little rusty! The work I’ve previously done is nothing as fine as the work I see on here which is seriously nothing short of amazing! (been stalking around here for a long time now!). But this site has inspired me to get back at it again, this time as a hobby rather than a job.
Since the shop I worked in wasn’t my own the only power tool I have is my drill! Have plenty of good quality hand tools as well but planning to expand that a little.
Was wondering what you guys would recommend as far as power tools go, (would love a little lathe of some kind) and also any little projects to get me back into the swing of things. Currently doing a few little bentwood rings, maybe I’ll get round to posting a few photos.
Anyway, there is loads I’d still like to ask but I’ll save those questions for another time!
