My name is Ron or r23on
I thought I should intorduce myself since I have put in a few photos to share. I retired in 2012 worked a bit of part time and travled to China to do some teaching.
My background primarily is Mech Engineering, some military service, eventualy teaching in the electrical, electronic and computer systems engineering for 20 years.
I enjoying making / repairing things either in metial and still dabel in a bit of computer eng and networking.
On the wood working side of things I like to pust the envelope by using old techniques of joining such dovetailing fingure jointing and dowling.
I guess that summes me up for now
Hello Barbara (@Baretta11),
Here are some pictures of what I did in my school holidays
Hello, I'm Simon. I've been a DIY'er for about 30 years now. No particular expertise but I've done a lot of renovating, and gardening too. A lot of trial and error, mostly error. My next project is building and landscaping our own home at Moss Vale, NSW. I'm bound to have many questions. Sausage on a piece of bread is a "sausage sizzle".
A big welcome to the Workshop community. We're really pleased you could join us at this exciting time. You must be thrilled to be building your our home. We have a few others doing the same at the moment, including one of our community founders @ProjectPete. Perhaps you could start a new discussion and share your plans with us? I'm sure our members would love to give you some advice and feedback along the way.
We just recently completed our septic too, big job isn't it with excavators, heaps of rock fill but it's all complete now, thank goodness we have our own loader and a friends small excavator!!
Just need to get the excavator back now to relevel the site now we've had some time pass for all the dirt to settle in all the trenches, then I'll be able to plant a new lawn in the area before the winter sets in.
Thanks Ryse for sharing and look forward to hearing from you in the future.

Thanks for setting up this forum! I’m Irene, an Early Childhood Educator from Brisbane. I’m into anything to do with succulents, upcycling/recycling for the home and garden, and sustainability. A project i’d Like to try is making lightweight concrete (foamcrete, perhaps??) garden furniture. Looking forward to being in contact with some like-minded peeps.
