Default Newbie from Germany

Hi all,

I am a DIY-allrounder for many years, but no real woodworker. And when I watch e.g. userprojects at lumbejocks, I know, I will never get on such a high level.

But I like working and woodworking, and I registerd here, because I would like to learn a lot from more experienced routerusers. I also have one, but used it very rarely.

This year, I started by building a cart from scrap for ply-sheets, cutaway etc. and placed it in our garage. This way, I got enough space in my small shop for a wood-lathe, I bought (a used one). So actually I am building a simple, but solid stand with casters for it. Next project should be a new workbench (new-fangeld/John-White-type). I used an old kitchentable from my mother all the years, but now I hate it. Its far to low for me. Eyes and back dont get better over the years.

Router skills should especially grow, because I also want to build a door and for many other project it would also be usefull, to be able using a router in the right way.

Registering here for me was not easy. I tried it with several name, mailadresses etc. and was always rejected (...Spam...). Maybe my ISP (German Telekom) is blacklisted? But my brother in Sweden finally did the registration for me. Hopefully, this is ok for you and a login still possible tomorrow.

Best regards to all of you!

Uwe

Thanks a lot to both of you!

Limiting options for a newbie is totally ok. I am present in a lot of different forums (most of them about webdesign etc.), so I am familiar with the problems (spam etc.) and how to prevent them.

Forums for me are such a useful knowledgebase. I learned a lot this way (and I am alwas trying to help other users, if possible). And if someone would have told me in the beginning, there would be useful(!) tutorials on youtube someday (where anyone could and still can upload some crap), I would have called him crazy. But there is al lot of knowledge an tips too.

Looking around here in this forum, I found lots of useful informations for me very quickly. Maybe I should change my nick in sponge now.

Best regards

Uwe

Hi James and thanks a lot!

The world is very small. We have a neighbour here, who is born in Newzealand and lived in Australia with his german wife for some years. For him, Germany seems to be much more fascinating than Australia ore Newzealand. In my eyes, he is crazy. All a question of perspective, I think.

Best regards

Uwe
