    Hi from London (UK)....

    Hi. I just came acrooss your site whilst looking for things to make with my new found passion of working with wood! I suppose it's been said a thousand times before...but as I approach retirement (57), I could do with eeking out my pension a little in these credit crunch days.
    Any suggestions welcome - I've managed to make and sell a few Scrabble turntables....but that's it so far!!
    Great site, and so much of it.
    Regards,
    Billy

    Welcome to the family Billy!

    I see from your avatar that you do not have a high speed connection still using a modem?
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I also dream of a shop with north light where my hands can be busy, my soul rest and my mind wander...

    Welcome to the Family Billy, glad you found us!

    We LOVE pictures, of your work, or you shop, or both

    Cheers!

    Yes, I heard there was still a guy with dial-up. You must be him.
    Cheers and welcome.
    Most of us are looking for things to sell. Many of us do with varying degrees of success and profit. I have been selling pens with unpredictable monthly results. Some months quite a few and some months none. Vaughn, OTOH, is getting rich selling turned bowls. Right, Vaughn?

    Welcome Billy. Take a look at a site like Penn State or Woodcraft there are lots of goodies to make to look at selling. Depends on your market and your skill.

    With the value of the Pound to the dollar right now you can pick up some of these things pretty cheaply for your market. Then there is always good old Lee Valley

    These are some links to ideas where some of the material is available.

    Hey whats your interests. What do your friends do?

    All the best getting started. You will find tons of help from the guys on this forum. I am still overwhelmed by the availability of help and advice.
    cheers

    Hi Billy I'd like to see your scrabble turntable! I made a scrabble table with a built in turntable for my wife a while back, and it presented some challenges to say the least. I'll show mine if you show yours Cheers, Barry
