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.
