Well, my story is as follows, originally from the North East of England, we moved down to South West France five and a half years ago where we have been renovating a 300 year old French farmhouse. We’ve been on a very tight budget, as you must appreciate, these kinda projects are a money pit so we have had to make do a great deal with what we have. My father was a carpenter/joiner back in the UK and his father before him, so we kinda got wood grain running through us. I do have to confess that I strayed into Dry Wall for twenty years chasing the money.
It looks like the people on this site have managed to make some great pieces
As we’re, dare I say it, nearing the end of our project here in France, I’ve been hoping to slowly wean off the heavy construction and follow my heart and heritage and get back into some proper carpentry, I’m hoping to create a few pieces to decorate our nearly finished home with.
Whilst looking for different plans and designs for inspiration on-line, which is how I can across the WoodworkingWeb.
I haven’t quite managed to make a start on any new projects as of yet, but I’m always looking for plans and design, which need to be great and full of every detail needed, which is what a restarter like me really needs.
