My passion is to create, and I have been doing this both in the creative foods I cook as a chef, to the wood products I produce with a pride that, “I did the best I can”.
On the 12th, of January I slipped off a bench in my shop and fell 28 inches, fracturing my heel. I have been laid up since and I am slowly getting back to normal.
I have never been laid up in the 60 years of my life. I felt lost and then I found the forums, I had never had the pleasure of taking the time to chat, learn, give my personal experiences or an opinion on woodworking. This opened up a whole new world to me.
I “thought” I had a good grip on woodworking skills, until I listened to some of the experiences the people on this forum have had and the unique ways they solved and over came both logistical and physical issues.
The crafts that each of you, create and show are built with pride and care in, “I did the best I can”.
I am proud to be part of this community and thank the moderators and sponsors for this site. It has filled the last 4 months with a lot of pleasure. I will continue to be part of this forum as I start to create again! ☺ ☺ ☺

Cleaning my glasses will not make me look any better, but will make what I'm looking at better!
