Location: Switzerland

kitchen professor in Switzerland, I have the passion of the wood work and I speak very bad english!!! Be tolerant with me!
I discovered your web site by my colleague James, member of your group!
We speak a lot about wood work and Rugby!!!
My spirit is to use ONLY waste wood, like the example you can look on the picture.
I feel to much wast wood in the world.
I make a lot of tools for children with always the signature of "Oncle Jules". Oncles Jules was the Oncle of Marcel Pagnol, a famous writer from the south of France, very funny with the children!
Have a nice day and excuse my bad level in english!

Welocme. A lot of members here support the use of waste/salvage wood. Great minds…...

Soit le bienvenu sur le site Oncle Jules !

Décidément, tu dois être quelqu’un de bien… si tu aimes le bon vin et Pagnol tu seras une addition très intéressante ici.

Excuse mon tutoiement, or ici nous somme entre collègues et je le trouve de rigueur. Si toutefois ça te gêne il n’y a qu’à le dire.

En ce qui concerne ton niveau d’anglais, ne t’en fais pas : ici nous sommes une joyeuse bande de gens de partout dans le monde et on s’en fiche pas mal des petits trucs comme ça. Au fat, je trouve que ceux qui font les pires fautes en anglais sont… ceux qui l’ont appris comme première langue ! Va savoir… ;o)

Le plus important ici, c’est qui donne un vrai sens de communauté c’est justement ça, le fait de partager entre amis. Ceux qui ont un problème de santé le partagent, ceux qui ont une bonne nouvelle, le font aussi. Et tous nous soutenons ou nous rejouons ensemble. En fin de comptes, il n’y a pas que le ”woodworking” dans la vie !

Étant moi même un féru buveur du bon vin et amateur du style “campagnard” je ne peux qu’approuver ton chiffonnier, il est magnifique. Bravo. Ton épouse est très fortunée..

C’est très intéressante ton approche de rechercher à ne pas utiliser que du bois de recyclage, est-ce que je peux te demander s’il y aucune raison de particulière pour ça ? En tout cas, c’est un beau défi.

Si tu as besoin de n’importe quoi il n’y a qu’à demander, si c’est dans ma main, ça me fera plaisir de pouvoir t’aider.

Alors ne soit pas timide et montre-nous plus de projets et ton atelier aussi, on est avides pour savoir plus !

À bientôt,

Mince ! Maintenant que j’y pense, j’espère que tu parles aussi du français et pas que du allemand/romanche ! :oD

You have a great and unique style. I think reclaiming wood and furniture is a real art. I like all your projects so far and hope to see more.

Bienvenue! On parlons de bois ici!... We’re all over the globe, and many of us share a passion for reclaiming lumber. Welcome aboard!

I may have to shake a little rust off my french – it’s been a while. Not much thanks to high school and college classes so much as spending 4 mois in St. Malo, Bretagne, France. (but lets not talk about how long ago that was – I already on my second passeport – which I hope will get more than 2 stamps like the first one did. (St. Malo both times) Always will be a second home to me, and fortunately a Sister City to the (also intra-muros) Quebec – which, all things considered isn’t all that far from me.
