    Smile Hello...

    Hi all,

    I have just found you guys, so I thought I'd just drop in and say Hi.

    I live in London, England and spend my days writing about or participating in all things woodwork. I have written hundreds of articles and a few books on the subject. That does not make me an expert, just experienced. I also write, photograph and illustrate related technical literature for manufactures from time to time. I like to share what I know and get great pleasure in learning new techniques and generally talking 'shop'.

    I have a 18 x 12ft shop in the garden that has only been there a couple of years. Prior to that (and still in use today) I was using my little 6 x 8ft shed that some of you may be aware of as I have posted pictures of it on other forums. I have also written several articles based on just what you can do in a small space...

    Thank you for letting me join your community, I'm off now to join in with one of the threads...

    Ralph

    Edit: Sorry, I posted this in the wrong forum, but hey, I'm the new boy here. Besides what do I know about woodworking forums

    welcome to the family!

    Folks, pay attention to Ralph's posts, he's a wealth of knowledge ! (and he makes a mean puzzler over on the WWA too!)

    Welcome to the Family Ralph!

    Small spaces, yeah, I know something about that!

    Ah ha! I found your original post. I just responded to your shop tour post...since I didn't see this.

    As I mentioned over there...Welcome aboard!

    And unlike Stu, I don't like small spaces. My "Birth of a Shop" thread is proof of that!

    And remember, we love pictures...

    Wow! Glad you found us, Ralph! Guess I shouldn't be complaining about how small my shop is for a while. But...

    "A few books"? My eye!

    Pssst... guys... google "Ralph Laughton woodworking"

    like this:

    Maybe now I'll finally learn how to sharpen my chisels...

    Thanks,

    Bill
