I had been looking for a hobby for a while and since I didn’t have space for a workshop I always ruled against woodworking. That all changed in October 2012 when we bought a nice town house with the perfect spot for a workshop!

So far I bought an old solid core wood door workbench, a bunch of vintage Stanley and record hand planes, some chisels, a vintage drill press, a thickness planer, a 14” band saw that I’m restoring, and just recently a contractors table saw.

All of this has made me realize that I need a properly organized workshop, which is what I’m working on now. I will keep you all posted on my journey.

I am very interested in making my own hand tools and woodworking machines. I also enjoy restoring vintage hand tools and machines to their previous glory. And on the side I’m going to build some furniture. ;) If I have the time I might also join the Ottawa Woodworking Association/Group to meet other like-minded people.

Thanks for the nice welcome. I had been looking for a hobby for a while and since I didn’t have space for a workshop I always ruled against woodworking. That all changed in October 2012 when we bought a nice town house with the perfect spot for a workshop!

So far I bought an old solid core wood door workbench, a bunch of vintage stanley and record hand planes, some chisels, a vintage drill press, a thickness planer, a 14” bandsaw that I’m restoring, and just recently a contractors table saw.
