Greetings one and all! Just discovered this site. Seems just the sort of place I have been searching for, for what seems forever. Great project ideas, great forum and lots of knowledgeable woodworkers keen to share their experiences.

I am an electronics engineer by day and in my spare time a keen woodworker, DIY enthusiast and electronics tinkerer. I am looking to get more into the woodworking side as I gain skills and read what can be done in a limited workshop. Already seen a few projects that I would like to turn into reality.

Anyway enough rambling from me. Great to be here. Looking forward to reading and posting more soon.

Welcome aboard, Chris! I’m sure you’re gonna love this site. Which side of the debate do you find yourself … hand tools or power tools?

Welcome Chris! Make a stool and set a spell. My other hobby is amateur radio (ham radio) and someday I’d like to get a proper bench for electronics tinkering set up.

Welcome Chris. We could do with another Brit on board to help correct the American spelling. LOL. Only joking, you’ll love it here. There is a wealth of experience in all types of woodworking on LJs and people are always willing to answer questions. Just jump in and make yourself at home.

Morning All, many thanks for the welcome and sorry for the delay in doing so.’Time is not my own’, as they say.

In answer to Ron’s question on ‘hand tools or power tools’, I can only say that I have a new (less than 3 months) but limited workshop (16’x10’) which is shared with my electronics hobby, so I’m afraid I am in both camps. Got rid of my table saw about 8 years ago as I needed space and regretted it on day one! I think there is a question to answer of quicker build time, consistency V the satisfaction of hand built.

Tim, I am a radio ham also although I have no radio set up at all at the moment. The new workshop is still being fittted out. Cannot wait until its complete.

All the best, Chris.
