  • introducing myself

    Well folks today I am starting my journey on this site, and I know I have many doubts due to not knowing English, but using the google translator I hope to break the language difficulties, with calm and patience get there.

    My name is Leandro live in Bage, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, I am a photojournalist by profession but by the need to be learned as a craftsman and carpenter work and seek always to learn something and that is why I'm here. What little I know I learned in practice alone, reading and asking questions.
    So if I ask too much sometimes sorry is the willingness to learn, I like Intarsia and here in Brazil do not think anything published so the internet is my library, and I dowloads of magazines, photos, videos or all who can help me. And if anyone can help me with projects, tips will be very grateful now.
    A hug to everyone
    Leandro Vargas

          Leandro, if you're especially interested in intarsia, look for the challenges in the Intarsia, Segmentation and Inlay section of this forum. You will find a great deal of information about how to do intarsia as well as things the people doing the challenges learned along the way.

          Janette Square has done an excellent series of articles on Intarsia in the Creative Crafts and Woodworking magazine. You can find them on their site under back issues.

            PatteM, pmac53 e Jan thanks for the reception and hopefully learn a lot from you, not only in Intarsia but in any matter that relates to wood, anyway after it proves the wood is hard to put down.
            Hugs to all

                I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.

                Hi Rolf - the unit I bought will also do Tig welding once you buy the optional accessories - torch, nozzles etc: - plus it will do conventional stick welding too. I doubt I'll be heading down the TIG route anytime soon, at least not for the projects I have in mind at the moment.

                I did a...

                Jim I bought a mig welder the last time I did a frame off restoration on my TVR. I had a few frame cracks. I bought one that used shielding gas. I never really mastered the power vs feed vs moving the torch. Using it only a couple of times a year did not help.
                My dream was to buy a TIG so that...

                Partly because I have trouble seeing small letters with my one remaining eye and also because my existing wireless keyboard gave up the ghost a couple of days back I went out this morning and bought a new wired keyboard from our local Oice Depot.

                I chose one with really big blue illuminated...
