Thread: Gday from Australia

  1. #1

    Gday from Australia

    Hi everyone,

    I have been reading these forums for quite a few months now and became a member a couple of months ago so that I could view the pictures that people post.

    I am loving the family atmosphere and the skill shown by all you talented folks and find all that I am seeing here very inspiring.

    I spent a couple of days glued to the computer just going through Stu's Dungeon pages and look forward to seeing more.

    I Live in Gladstone, Queensland, Australia (thats the top right bit on the map)
    with my Wonderful wife (LOML) and 3 equally wonderful children.

    I guess now that I have come out of hiding I might be a little more sociable and chat a little more... maybe even take part in something like that gadget swap?

    I am very new to woodworking with few tools and experience but have started out by putting a workbench together.. seemed like a good place to start

    Looking forward to getting to know you folks a little better.

    Welcome to the family Davin!!!
    Actually this gadget swap is over, but thinking there will be another if the family members like the gadgets they get!
    Let's see, you are in the midst of winter currently? Any pictures of your shop or of your work?
    We are glad you are aboard, just jump on in the insanity from time to time!!
    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.

    I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.

    Welcome aboard! Hey, No worries, we'll be getting some more swaps going pretty soon. Seems like we have a semi regular box swap that happens. Should be happening in the fall sometime...

    Oops.. lurked a little too long to catch the gadget swap...

    "Shop" is just a workbench in the carport at the moment... will try to get a pic posted of my workbench... not much else to speak of as far as "work" goes

    and funny you should mention insanity... I just finished editing my Signature
    I don't suffer from insanity... I enjoy every minute of it

    Welcome to the clubhouse, Davin. Good to see another Aussie join up and start participating. We need some folks down there to help balance things out. We get enough northern pull from Canada, so a bit of a tug from the south is a good addition.
