Hi everyone. I’ve just joined from the UK and am excited to get started with some projects. I did carpentry (aka ‘wood shop’ I guess) at school and really enjoyed it. Many years later (now >40yo) I’m building a garage/workshop and hope to catch up on lost time.

My first projects are likely to be:
  • Garage/Workshop doors
  • DIY CNC router
  • Bed

I’ll start a separate thread on the garage doors as they are needed soon (already have holes to put them in).

Cheap versions of tools I currently have mostly still in their box:
  • Router and flimsy metal table (Aldi)
  • Table saw (Aldi)
  • Track saw (Lidl)

Welcome a lot of good info here and some good humor as well.

Have your say...
