Hope to be able to do more around the house in the future by learning what I can from here!

Re: Introduce yourself to the community

Hi there, 

 

I'm enthusiastic about gardening, woodworking and DIY.

 

I consider myself to be a fairly experienced gardener because the number of plants I've killed is equal to the number of plants that I've successfully grown and kept alive. 😂

 

I'm an amateur woodworker/DIYer, but I love learning and giving things a go. I try to research as much as possible before I start, and I like designing stuff to fit my own needs rather than just settling for a generic solution. That said, I have often used generic solutions when they suit my application!

 

I finally signed up for the forum after months of silently admiring everyone's projects.

@TempestSkye7

Welcome to the community.

I too have similar ethics about gardening but I'm fairly sure now I have more live plants than dead ones finally, not equal ha-ha, albeit I tossed out a succulent today that I must have overwatered and replaced it with a new type and hope to have better luck.😆

Apart from helping hubby build our forever home over the last 11 years, I'm not into any serious woodworking but I can lay fame to a couple of things including having repurposed an old book shelf into not one but two storage and hanging shelves this was actually cutting and screwing together which I;ve never done before.

Oh and I pullled apart a beautiful redgum table, sanded it and re polyurethaned it all and used liquid glass on the top and also completed a redgum burl table with liquid glass too.

Re: Electrical wiring - dangers

As an electrician. Giving advice to ordinary members of the public on 240 v mains electrical wiring is fraught with danger. By law It also needs to be carried out by a licensed electrician. I personally would not give advice (other than, use a licensed electrician) because I would not like to think that I was partly responsible for someone being injured or electrocuted.
