  • Hi everyone! Newbie from Pasig

    Hi everyone! Like many before me, I first stumbled upon this site while searching for supplies for a project (in my case, a workbench still in progress). There's a lot of useful information here and it's great to see so many folks willing to hand out plenty of sound advice, so keep up the good work!

    I'm a casual/novice DIYer for now, but I find woodworking quite interesting and enjoyable. Ultimately I would like to develop my skills to where I can build a Roubo workbench someday (emphasis on "someday") I'm still gathering basic handtools.

    I stay in Pasig right along Ortigas ave. Hopefully I can learn more from you guys (I've got a lot to learn at this point!)

    Hello Randy!

    You're very much welcome here, I'm quite new here myself.

      Hi!

      Welcome to this forum. I am also new in this forum but I find it to be a very warm community of people whose passion and love for DIY are compelling. The regulars here (Timber, Beebeenator, JayL, Moji, to name a few) are always there to help out. If you have a question, a day will not pass that you will not get a reply.

      I saw your post in the "Woodworking" segment. Just like you, I am just starting to get fascinated with woodworking and is starting to build my suite of power tools. For now, I have a drill, CMS, router, jigsaw, circular saw and spray paint. How I wish I can have the more serious power tools and appliances like TS, thicknesser and jointer but I neither have the money nor the space to justify getting them.

      Cheers!

        yes that's true'people in this forum are nice'especially timber(nagkita nga kami kahapon),he's always here to help you...i'm also new in this hobby.words of advice.practice lang ng practice to hone your skills,and don't be on a rush,always take your time.this is a very relaxing and fulfilling activities,once you finish a project,you feel an aura of fulfillment.do on small projects first,until your skills are looking for a fine woodworking job.just like me thats my goal,..i think there will come a time that you want to upgrade your tools,to avoid frustration,go on tools that are durable and of good quality,buy the basic tools that are needed,ask the experts.good luck.

          welcome bro!

          you have a pretty perfect location for material shopping ah? me home depot paba jan sa pasig area? the last time i went there perhaps was in 2002 pa..

          Started this hobby sometime in the year 1993 with a few handtools, a power drill and a jigsaw..today i havent done the inventory yet but i think 1/10 of my compensation went into purchasing power tools..little did i know that tool hunting is a never ending story..

          ironically, i think i have built more pieces of furniture back then than is now..
