Hi, at age 62 yrs I am approaching retirement. Together with my keen interest in fly fishing, I wish to take up woodworking to fill the many leisurely hours lying ahead. I've always been a keen but mediocre woodworker hence never really became truly offay with the discipline. Since joining a local woodworkers interest group recently namely the woodworkers association of Pretoria, I realized how mediocre I really am. As professional engineer, I've learnt to make extensive use of the electronic media such as the router forum to expand my knowledge base. Through the router forum, I've already gained some valuable insights into the powerful capabilities of my collection of routers, and hope that I may also make some contributions in the future.

Welcome to the forum Lourens. Joining a group as you have is a good way to get started. Looking forward to your contributions.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
