    Hello from Victoria

    Hello everyone! I am new to the forum. I have very little experience with woodworking but am eager to learn more about it. I would love to help my mom build her bookshelves!

    Howdy and Don, I think you hit the nail on the head with that one. We're being invaded.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    She asks A LOT of questions here, but always keeps things interesting.

    probably, whether I want to or not. I remember coming home from work once and finding Rachel wearing some of my jewelry that she'd worn to school........ I'm sure she'll have her little mittens all over my chisels.... on the other hand she does live close to Lee Valley....
