  About Me

  • My Shop
    Some detailed information about my workshop.
    Power Tools
    Bosch POF 500A.
    Power Pro router table and router.
    Bosch GTS 10 XC table saw (my newest toy).
    MacAllister Sliding Compound Miter Saw.
    Startrite Bandit bandsaw (needs a service).
    Several Bosche green items (circular saw, drills, jigsaw, sanders, etc.).
    Bosch blue hammer drill which I have had since c. 1983 and is still going strong.
    Trend Pocket Screw jig (great tool).
    Trend A30 shop vacuum.
    One of my current projects is a home-made table saw.
    My Shop
    My workshop is my garage (where I store everything) and my patio (where I wheel everything out when I want to do some woodwork). When it rains, nothing big gets built - if I am lucky I can build or tinker with jigs, but usually I just tidy up.
  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    I live with my wife and our two daughters (born in 2002 and 2004) in leafy Surrey. I have made my living in and around the computer software industry for longer than I care to remember, but I am currently "between assignments".
    Location
    Surrey, UK
    Interests
    I like cooking and eating oriental food (Indian, Chinese, Thai, etc.).
    I enjoy personal computing, photography, cycling and DIY.
    On a Friday evening, I usually have a few beers down the pub with my friends.
    Favorite Router
    I currently have a Bosch POF 500A.
    I also have a Power Pro router table and router.
    I am looking at one of the Bosch Professional routers, and also at one of the Trend routers, but I am still undecided.
    Woodworking Experience (Years)
    20 years, on and off, but I am just a hobbyist, inspired by Norm Abram and Paul Sellers..
    First Name
    David
    Country
    United Kingdom
  • Signature
    When my time comes, I want to die like my grandfather did - quietly, and in his sleep - not kicking and screaming like the passengers in his car.
