    My Shop
    I use my garage as much as possible but rather limited on the coldest winter days. I have a small dedicated area in the basement for lighter work and finishing. I have always wished I had a proper separate building on the property but that's not in the cards.
  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    I signed on some while ago and I think I'd best complete this information.
    I've been retired ten years this July. I've not been a dedicated woodworker, not as much as I've wanted to be but recently the bug has taken a bigger bite of me. There has always been some reason in the past for not getting immersed. Job, family, too cold in the garage in winter, not enough space indoors etc. etc.
    I now have the time and the frame of mind and just completed a very nice bookcase. I'm in the midst of a small table but stopped to create some jigs to do the job better. The amount of information on-line is amazing. I plan to keep[ up the momentum.
    Location
    Oakville, Ontario, Canada
    Interests
    I do volunteer driving for the Canadian Cancer Society. My ninth year. Twice, sometimes three times a week.
    Favorite Router
    Among other tools, I have a Bosch 1617EVSPK router. Never a problem and a great tool.
    Woodworking Experience (Years)
    off and on since I was a kid.
    First Name
    thomas
    Country
    Canada
