Welcome, great to have another member that is posting projects! We have a apprentice Aircraft Mechanic her in Los Angeles from South Africa. I’ll have to show him the map on your profile.

@Ken yes please do, quite likely they know my area. BTW I loved the peg board project. And 3 sailing boats built by your grandfather, wow that’s heritage to be proud of.

All – thank you so much am really loving this site, filled a masisve vacuum of not collaborating with other woodworkers around the world and now i can on such an amazing site, thank you. I look forward to posting my projects, commenting and contributing in general, (plus I hope I can count on fellow LJs to boost some sales of my book when it comes out in 2014 but you’ll be hearing plenty from me about that in due course)
