Default Too late?

I am returning to woodwork in my dotage. Too many years ago I made furniture and things associated with buying older houses such as a dozen sash windows. I was then reasonably familiar with routers and hand tools.

For no good reason I am setting out to build a wood strip canoe and I am looking for a support network to help me learn new skills and relearn ord ones. One of the advantages of increasing age is a little more free cash for essential equipment, but I am cautious about some of the reviews I seAnyway I will see where joining you leads!

Welcome to the forum Terry.

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.

G'day Terry, welcome to the forum.

I believe there was a post on building a canoe some time ago.

Check the show and tell section.....
