Can’t wait to see your shop. I envy your job to unpack everything. I hate moving. Keep us posted on your shop and projects.

Hi there Occie,

Thanks for taking me aboard as friend.
Costa Rica must have some exotic wood.
Anxious to see your workshop and your submitted projects.

God bless you.

Welcome to LJ. I hope you were kidding about the 14 daughters. I have one son and I feel overwhelmed. Best of luck with the wood work. I am just starting out myself. For a number of years I made simple projects but started to get frustrated that I wasnt really improving. I have now started classes. I go to the Brisbane School of Woodworking for a day every three weeks. I would go more often, but life gets in the way of a good time. And I avoid the conversation about how much it is costing me, I SWMBO found out. Deary, deary, deary me it is toooo much to think about. But I enjoy it, and occasionally something useful comes out of the shed. I keep telling her, you enjoy having a husband that can make, fix, repair, mend and alter just about anything. This didnt just happen, it is based on years of experience which I am still working on.

Cannot wait to see the sights of Costa Rica, the products of your workshop.
Let the wood chips fly.

occie :

i know costa rica is gorgeous ,
and the freedom is exiting ,
by now you must have at least looked at
the boxes of tools ?
if you want , i will try and come
and help set them up ?
