Hey people! Just started woodworking but tried to educate myself as much as possible with the Woodsmith Shop (currently building the router table), Wood Talk, Wood Whisperer, and Steve Ramsey. I would love to meet up with any level person in the eastern PA / Bucks County area to sharpen / develop my skills and maybe do some tool sharing. Is there a decent site that would help me accomplish this?

Hey Chris,
I live in Oreland, just south of Willow Grove. I’m more or less a 1/2 time professional hobbiest for lack of a better description. Anyhow, I’m in the shop most days and while somewhat of a hermit, I’d be happy to have someone to share skills and techniques with. I have a decently outfitted shop as well if you were to need something in that regard. I think you need five or so post to send messages but do sow when you can. I’ll get you my email/ number that way if you’d like.

I’m in Chester county. I’ve progressed from schary sharp, to stones, to using Worksharp. It’s not bad once you get the hang of it.

Hey Don,
Thanks for your reply. I have a cousin that lives in Oreland so I have been there a number of times. Maybe if you contact me directly we could set up a time to work together. My email is [email protected] Thanks!

Bones, you lost me. Don’t know what any of those are! Do tell.

Very similar situation for me here. Most of my woodworking skills come from where I work. So far, all i have available at home are hand tools and a ‘59 Delta Rockwell RAS + a Delta Milwaukee 4” jointer, although I am occasionally able to mill for projects on the machines at work.

Shoot me a PM if you guys are ever local to DelCo.

Have your say...
