Hello everyone ,

we live in the middle of the forest, in a house built in 1642 so it needs a full renovation and as i am a carpenter, no problems right? apart from the money & health things are going slowly but in the right direction,

my workshop is 10 meters X 10 meters , but only half the floor has been concreated (roll on the spring)

Machines...

Dust extractor from FELDER

Felder FB600 Bandsaw

Hammer A3 31 Planer/Thicknesser

+ I have just opened the box`s to a new incra metric set up including table / cleansweep & a few other goodies 

i will take a few pictures  this week but for now happy hollidays & stay safe,

Smiffy

Welcome !  That sounds like the start of a nice shop . So part of your shop floor is dirt ? Old barn / shed type space ? We would love to see some pictures.

I think it's earth under the accumulated years of who knows what farmers crap , 

I've had so much to do on the house so the workshop set up has been pushed back & back unfortunately.

I've taken 6 months off work , as being a class 1truck driver doesn't give me much time at home to rest, let alone do some work on the house. 

Picture's will be up when I get back from Prague in a few day's.

Have fun in Prague.  I was there this summer, took the train up from Munich.  Old Prague has some really neat architecture.

Good looking shop helpers! I like the goose or is it a duck? Shop looks really neat.

How cold exactly is cold to you? It's -23C here right now.

It's just above freezing now but the wind is strong so it feels more like  -10c,,

plus I'm only just getting over a man cold. 

The temp will be +10c by the weekend... 

It's a Swan goose called pipla, he has 15 brothers and sisters, he  doesn't mix with the other geese much as when he hatched he got stuck to the shell and was on his last leg's, we got him into the house and my wife & kid's nursed him for a few weeks and now he thinks he's human

I am late to the party but, Welcome!  Having plenty to do and the tools and supplies to do them is my idea of heaven.  Glad to have you.

Waterfowl like geese and ducks can make really good pets. They are very social animals, I've always wanted a trio of ducks for pets. Had some when i was younger and they were a riot.

And they are great for letting us know when people are around, normally the people are shouting and running away from them.

Yeah, domesticated geese pair well with and are effective like watchdogs. 

Wild Geese are ace holes, when ever i see them on the road i want to run them over, damaging my vehicle is the only thing that stops me.

I think you will be happy with that router table set up.  I have pretty much the same one and really like it.

Around here, the geese seem to hate runners. Many a time I've been chased by a hissing goose.
