As a new member to Mens Sheds I thought I would introduce myself.
I am in the process of relocating from Putney, London to Bakewell/Buxton having finished full time work last year. This is proving to be slower than hoped for due to the slowness of the housing market! Hopefully we will be able to sell our flat and make the move this year.
I am interested in joining an existing shed or assisting / being involved in setting up a new Shed – somewhere near Bakewell, Buxton / Matlock etc.
I have done quite a lot of woodwork, a little turning, metalwork and home maintenance activities and am looking to use the skills I have to assist others, work on community projects and hopefully work on projects for Remap. I am also particularly interested in learning about / getting hands on with using CNC, 3D printing machines. I am computer literate and am currently learning to use the CAD/CAM software required to run these machines.
When you get up here we would like to invite you to visit our shed just outside Chesterfield. It may be a bit far from your planned relocation area but we would be happy to show you around and have a chat over coffee. We have a great workshop, postcode is S42 5EJ.
I would also like to extend an invitation to you to visit our shed at Swanwick. Sadly at the moment, Derbyshire is short on sheds and there is nothing as yet in the peak. We have been going for two years and operate from a pleasant farm site with woodturning, furniture restoration and much more.
