    New at the forum, new house, new shop

    Hi there.

    I'm brand new at this forum, and I'm sorry to say based quite far away from most of you.
    Having moved from a flat to a house with a much proper space to have a woodworking shop,(which is is empty at the moment) and having had the reward of someone who liked a project I made for him (for free) and wants to "sponsor" me with tools, I'm set to get a bandsaw and a jointer/thicknesser that will allow me to aim for more ambitious things than what I have up to now with hand tools, a hand drill and a hand circular saw.

    They will not be heavy duty professional machines but rather good mid-range ones. I will post the evolution of my shop here and I will welcome any comments or suggestions from any of you.

    I'm happy to be a member of this woodworking family, and I hope to be able to colaborate more, although there are a lot of fellow members with much more experience than me. Most of the time I feel like I'm getting more than I'm giving and I thank all of you for sharing your experience.

    Last but not least, english is not my mother tongue and although I have good command of it, sometimes I miss the subtleties of the written language and either I misunderstand things or I write things that may be misunderstood.
    So please let me rely on your forgiveness if this happens any time.

    Best regards,

    Toni

    Welcome Toni. It will be great to get your perspective on things. We can all benefit from seeing how woodworking is carried out in different parts of the world.

    By the way, if I lived that close to Barcelona, I don't think that I would be sorry.
    Cheers, Frank

    Hey Jesse, Toni is 20 kilometres away from Barcelona, not 20 miles.
    Cheers, Frank

    I know Toni from a Japanese tools site.

    you see this is what I was saying in my introductory message. Don't get me wrong but I don't feel sorry to be 20Km. away from Barcelona, in fact I'm born there and I lived there until 3 years ago. So this is what I meant when I talked about the subtleties of the written language.

    Best regards

    Toni
