Monthly Book Giveaway - December 2022

Retired, ex mainframe systems programmer. Now full-time recreational woodworker majoring in puzzles, pens, boxes, T&J Toys and occasional small furniture.
Design everything (and I mean everything) in SketchUp prior to touching tools. I am fortunate to have the use of a laser and I like to laser cut pieces in MDF to use as either layout patterns (3mm MDF) or routing templates (6mm MDF). For small intricate parts I occasionally laser cut, however, removing the burn marks is more a hassle than hand cutting.
I'm a real gadgets man and squander many a $ on new innovations and handy tool supplements. I also like to make jigs and design my own gadgets and while at times a purchased jig may be cheaper than a shop made one sometimes they may be improved for personal use. I often use 3D printed parts designed in SketchUp to supplement my wooden jigs in creating wood pieces for models.

But most of all I love a glass or two of red... that's a lie.. a bottle or two.. another lie.. I buy casks... actually I tried to buy a pub but I got prematurely retrenched, so I left the big smoke (Richmond, 3 km from Melbourne CBD) and practiced intimidation of the folks in Churchill (160K ESE from Richmond)...

PS. Have had no formal woodwork training, however, if you see some of the tools I use it'll become obvious that without those I could never even cast a shadow (and it's a large(ish) shadow) on competent woodies.

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD
