    Hi from Tasmania

    Gday everyone , i am absolutely brand new to woodworking , my son has done some lathe work at school and wants me to set up a shed so we can both learn. He likes the bowl making and stuff, whereas I would like to learn some rustic furniture skills , also like the idea of traditional gear like a treadle lathe
    Anyway good to be here !


    Regards
    Craig

    Welcome to the Family Craig!

    A shed, your son and a hobby you can both enjoy, sounds like a little bit of heaven
