Wow, that sounds amazing @bopple. I'm sure your son would love that, and that it would inspire many other Workshop community members. Looking forward to hearing more about your plans. Perhaps you could start a new discussion and share a bit more detail? I'm sure some of our keen woodworkers in particular would be happy to share their thoughts and advice.
Let me also extend a very warm welcome to the community. It's great to have you onboard. Workshop is a fun and friendly place and we look forward to you joining in the discussions and sharing your projects. Please post again soon.
My next project will be to make some outdoor concrete pots.I can't wait to get crafting.
They look great @PlantJunkie. Please share some photos when you make them. It's great to see you've already shared some photos of other projects on the Gallery.

Please let me know if you ever need a hand getting the most from the site.
Thanks to all who have made this a reality.It's a great idea. I have two projects I want to do.
1. Replace worn out rollers on sliding glass door.
Looked up sites online for learning how to replacing rollers, read what to do, just now to put into practice.
2. Assemble a Absco garden shed.
I had to do a retaining wall first (keystone blocks) due to the slope (to concrete with the slope was going to cost approx $2000). I barrowed 10 ton of clean fill ,made some steps also, in the middle so to be able to access lower garden. Had a concreter come in when site was level,to do slab for shed
I have a maintenance guy lined up hopefully to help me, as extra pair of hands required as these jobs are best done with 2 .
Two great projects. Many thanks for sharing @Snez. All the very best with them. If you need a hand with anything, don't hesitate to hit the Start a discussion button and ask the Workshop community for their input. I'm sure our community members will be more than happy to assist in any way they can.
Let me also extend a very warm welcome to Workshop. It's fantastic to have you join us. I'm looking forward to reading more about your projects and plans.
I've never really had all the tools I needed to tackle jobs that needed doing but as I'm now retired I've steadily bought tools as I needed them. Since September last year I've renevated a cabin/annex down the coast the helped daughter and son-in-law renevate and older house they purchased.
This has now given me the confidence to tackle more tasks. In the next year or so I'd like to tackle jobs around the house with a view of selling in the next year or two and down sizing now all the kids have gone. Looking forward to getting advice from the workshop community.
Hi John (@Gino)
You sound like a great Dad! I'm sure your daughter and son-in-law appreciate all the hard work you've put in. It would be great to see what you've done if could share further. Perhaps you could start a new discussion with more details about the renovation? Perhaps even some photos? I'm sure it would inspire and inform other members.
I'm also confident that you will can get plenty of help and information from other Workshop community members for your upcoming projects. Feel free to post anytime you need a hand.
Welcome to the community.
I have a kitchen, bathroom and laundry to rip out and replace. I've demolished the kitchen, removed the shower screen and removed the bathroom and linen closet doors from their frames. The next step is to remove the old vanity, a small wall cupboard in the laundry and the old laundry tub. After that, get all the PPE on and remove Tilux and other asbestos-containing panels. I'll do the easy stuff (<10 m2) and the pros can do the harder stuff. Fun fun fun, but it'll be good to have some progress!
Sounds fun @KEB. It would be great if you could hit the Start a discussion button and share some more detail on what you have planned. Do you have any photos and/or sketches? I'm sure that Workshop community members would be happy to provide feedback and advice on the project.
Thanks for joining the community here on Workshop. You'll find plenty of useful information and inspiration in the previous discussions and gallery photos, and that members are always happy to share their experiences and knowledge when asking new questions.
Looking forward to seeing more of your renovation soon.
