    Default Hello, Amatuer back yard woodworker and CNC user from Adelaide

    Hello all,

    Happy to have found this site as it looks to have a lot of information contained inside.

    I'm firmly an amatuer woodworker, happily turning wood into sawdust for almost 4 Decades. My father was a trained builder who turned his hand to restoring and construting wooden boats and I spent many days helping out whilst growing up.

    This time exposed me to most of the usual tools in a typical shed and some other odd methods of working - Turning a heavy drill, wooden post, nail, washer and some oil into a makeshift lathe to make wooden oars is a standout on how to do stuff without the proper tools. The bucket of water for when it catches fire was optional.

    Moving from the country and a workshop full of great toys to the suburbs I am now constrained and must work in my garage (attached to the house) This has necessarily limited my project scope somewhat and as a result I have focussed on smaller and more detailed work in recent years.

    Also, as I have a full time office job I cannot practice as much as I want so these constraints combined to lead me to purchase a CNC router and see what I could do. I'll probably post up my latest creation as I'm particuarly proud of it.

    Anyway, hope to linger around and be able to have a look at things, learn a bit more and maybe share what I have learn't along the way.

    Thanks Cal, I did see that earlier. I have three kids that make getting out and about a little hard. Will see if I can manage it.
