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....
Ok now we cooking with gas. This is really becoming a family forum. Welcom Rachel it warms the cockles of my heart to hear of a youngster getting involved in doing something with their hands. God gave us hands for more than pushing buttons on a keyboard. Its also a delight to have a few ladies take up the craft and demonstrate that more could be doing it.
Now you just have to sort out who is going to be boss in the workshop
Cynthia and Rachel sorry to hijack but since you are both here and building bookshelves check out this video Charles Neil has on his site. This is on his front page right now and is how he supports shelves. I dont know how long it will be the feature point.
Welcome aboard Rachel, I had a sneaking suspition when we met that you would get into building things. This is the place to be asking all the questions as there is a wealth of info here and a pretty cool family.
