Thread: hi, everybody

    hi, everybody

    Hello,
    My name is Jean (male), i am 50 and live in Caillac, near Toulouse in France. I like woodworking and think i'm better in this than in english. So, sorry for my broken language. I've already visited the usa five times. I visited San Francisco, LA, New orleans, Washington, New York, Boston ....
    I like your country and i dream to have all the Lie Nielsen Tools. Il try to work only with handtools and sometimes it's difficult.
    Thanks to accept me in your gang.
    Jean

    Welcome Jean! No worries about your English...we can handle it. We have Americans on this site who have the same problem. Woodworking is the only common language we need.

    Bienvenue, Jean! J'ai vecu huit ans à Nice. It's a long way from there to Toulouse, but it's still le Sud, quand même. No worries about language, your English is better than my French!

    I'm very happy you found us. Do you have any photos of your shop?

    Best,

    Bill

    Jean,

    Welcome to the group. I assume that by now you realize that we are all quiet, up tight, stern, and don't like fun. If you do realize that, your English is worse than you thought.

    Enjoy,
