Location: Würzburg, Germany

my name is Alex and for a living I do teaching and have recently become deputy head at my school. I'm married and have a 4 year old son and a lovely daughter of 10 months. I love wood and would - probably like most people here - love to have more time in my workshop which is actually my school's woodworking shop upgraded with my personal tools and machines.

Some people have asked about this: I make up for it don't worry!

To me the United States seem to be woodworking wonderland. I have seen all episodes of the New Yankee Workshop, WoodWorks, the Woodsmith Shop DVD collection and have recently come to love American books, podcasts, websites, youtube videos and cast iron planes. Sometimes I can't remember the German names for all kinds of tools and machinery, which is pretty embarassing. When I told my wife that I wanted to buy an American table saw (with a long arbor for dado blades) and have it shipped to Germany I had to pretend I was joking in order to survive ...

I never seem to get around posting my projects as time is very rare with two kids and a job. Recently my little boy showed interest in going to the workshop with me. I guess that's the best way to spend my time right now. I hope I will have more time at some point.
