I have been lurking on the wreck for most of the past year. I just wanted
to say "thanks." You all have been a great resource to a newbie ww'er. I
just thought I would introduce myself.
I have been slowly acquiring some tools. I would say I am definitely more
of a "Norm" than a "Neander." I live in London Ontario and have a good base
of retail stores including the Borg, The Building Box (borg clone, just
green), Dewalt factory outlet, Federated Tool (great selection of beginner
to serious pro stuff) and a Lee Valley Tools. If you like Lee's catalogue,
you should see the store. You can actually touch stuff! They also offer
some great Saturday seminars.
Since I don't have a garage, my shop consists of a 4X8 folding table on my
back deck. Any time I wish to make a project I have to drag everything up
from the basement. I wish I wouldn't have bought that Unisaw ;-) Although
it's easier to drag with snow on the deck.
I started making what turned out to be fancy firewood. But I finally got
the hang of a few things including some rail and stile doors, a picnic
table, a garden bench for MOSWMBO (mother of SWMBO). I even made a box for
the dogs toys and used a dovetail jig for the first time (lots more firewood
on that project). I need more freakin' practice trying to accurately
freakin' cut mitres for freakin trim that goes around the freakin' doorways
and freakin' mouldings...aaaaaggggg!!!!!
Anyway, keep up the good work.
All the best to you and yours in this holiday season.

Welcome aboard, Tony.
Problem with CMS's and mitre sleds etc is that they tend to give you perfect
45 deg mitres. Problem with most houses is that no door frame, window frame
or corner is ever at 90 degrees. Herein lies the art of the chippie.
Tony, do I know you? This is David from Federated Tool, if you have been in
the store much, I am sure we have met.
Every neighbourhood has one, in mine, I'm him.

You probably don't know me. I have been in the store a few times, but just
to drool. I did go in yesterday to buy a Bethany's Hope raffle ticket. If
I win, then you will most certainly know me.
