I like to introduce myself when entering a forum.
Not sure if that’s required here. Some forums like you to some don’t care.
Anyway, names Josh. I am very new to wood working. I just started making bentwood rings. I love it. My fascination though is the Viking culture. Or old Norse culture. They have some instruments I’d like to build, viking shields and other things. As tempting as it is to do things the easy way, and I have used.power tools my whole life, I’m thinking of doing these Viking or Norse inspired projects with hand tools. Doing it the way they would have. Just with modern hand tools.
I have a buddy teaching me wood turning. I have access to some power tools if absolutely needed. A planet, jointer and all that. But I plan on getting hand planes and stuff. For now I don’t have a lot of my own.
I am married with 3 kids. ages 5, 6 and 11. Hope I can help out with some of your questions and hope to learn a lot from some of you. I don’t have social media. I had only Facebook, but I don’t use that anymore because it just got filled with drama and wasn’t worth dealing with.Can’t work right now so trying to learn some skills that I can maybe make Skinner stuff to hopefully sell for some extra income one day. I like doing anything working with my hands so this will be good for me and to keep me busy.
Anyway, that’s just a little bit about me and what got me wanting to do some woodwork.
