I find myself embarrassingly responding to my first impulsive mailing to the group earlier. I felt a little uneasy that I'd not taken time to introduce myself, despite 'lurking' in the group for some days now.
I'm John from Edinburgh, Scotland, a very keen amateur woodworker/cabinetmaker and also a wheelchair user. This brings it's own issues, mainly, safety (often no more than 4-5 inches from work in hand), innovation and planning. However, I've already benefited massively from the many internet links you've provided and thanks for that.
I come to woodwork mainly thanks to Norm Abrahm and The New Yankee Workshop, shown on Discovery on cable in the UK and also a personal need to adapt fixtures and furniture to suit needs as a wheelchair user. I'd initially joined to enquire what a dado was, but found the answers on links provided by other members.
It's fantastic to know that such a newsgroup exists and I shall be visiting regularly and contributing whenever I feel I can make a valued comment or suggestion.
