Default Oops!


I'm new here today. I've just come to realize I accidentally put up a question here on the Introduction forum. That was not my intention. Sorry!

I am an amateur woodworker. I've been at it for close to 40 years. I am a family doctor, but I have a physical handicap that caused me to retire prematurely just a year ago yesterday. Now I have more time for woodworking, but ironically, the handicap results in it taking me a lot longer to get things done, and it makes using some equipment more dangerous and unwieldy, so even having more free time, I get a lot less done. I am extremely cautious and creative about it.

In recent years I have actually been more of a carpenter and DIY remodeller than a woodworker. I am about to get to the finish carpentry component of a bathroom remodel, and that will involve some finer work than the rough carpentry that was involved in initially reframing the room (this was more of a rebuild than a remodel, as there was a tremendous amount of dry rot in the stud frame and the flooring).

Once that is finished, I can get back to woodworking per se. I have plenty of use for power tools and I really enjoy using them, but I love working with hand tools, too, and have a relatively large collection of antique woodworking hand tools that I cherish. I can't wait to get back to them and back to getting my shop set up once this bathroom is finished. I have a lot of work left to do just getting my shop set up the way I want it, but I am fortunately one of those who finds the journey at least as important and pleasurable as the goal.

I must say, this is a very inviting group. Thanks a lot for the invitation.
