From 2017 I took an interest in woodworking...these are some of my projects and now its a passion

1st to 3rd project I accidentally posted in gallery but below are projects following on from my third😊

Firstly a brief history of me and where I found my love for everything wood.... After living in Victoria for a year and visiting many local homemaker markets my interest grew with the fascinating wooden projects I came across and so one day I came across a ladies woodworking course being advertised in the local community house program. I read it was being run at a local men’s shed, for three hours on a Monday for 6 weeks, only $60. It was simple bring in a plan, your wood and the men would provide tools, guidance and advice. Since joining this course I have pretty much enrolled myself every term and blocked out my Monday afternoons to indulge myself in woodworking with a group of older men and ladies to observe and discuss everything about working with wood...I love it!!! I have a great deal more confidence now....love a new challenge!! My skills (I think) have not only exceeded my own expectations but others as well (including my very supportive husband), who lives interstate for work, whom I see once every 3 months. My knowledge goes beyond the reference magazines I used to read and my passion for learning more about this incredibly interesting hobby is never ending. I have vibe from starting with the basic tools, such as a Ryobi cordless drill, to a scroll saw, lathe and bench saw... and now I am soon to learn the art of pyrography (wood burning). I’ll keep you posted on that... thanks for reading my story😊4th project - Bar stool4th project - Bar stool

Many thanks for introducing yourself @kbcreations. We're thrilled to have you join us and share your woodworking journey. You'll find lots of like-minded people in the community and I'm sure get inspired by both their stories and their projects. You might like to read some of their stories on the Workshop blog.  

 

Please let me know if you ever need a hand getting the most from the site. You certainly didn't do anything "wrong" with posting your projects on the Gallery! We know that it's currently a little confusing not knowing where to post so we're going to fix that soon. I just would recommend that you stick to sharing one project per discussion and make the title really clear. That way members in future can really easily find it. Hope that helps.

 

Welcome,

 

Jason
