Welcome to Cornish Workshop!
Well, as you might have guessed from the title, I live in Cornwall and do a little woodworking. As many modern woodworkers do, I got to thinking that using power tools was the only route to follow. Then I got on-line and discovered a group of hand tool, and particularly old hand tool, enthusiasts calling themselves Galoots. This appealed to the woodworker, history buff and “accumulator” in me (yes, all three of them) and I was hooked. Not to say I’ve entirely sworn off the powered tools, you understand. I’m just much more likely to reach for a hand saw rather than a circular saw to trim a board to length now. The main aim of this site is to cover that side of my woodworking and give back a little in return for all the information I've gleaned from other people's sites.
Despite the .co.uk in the address, this is a personal, non-commercial website, and like practically every other one, it is very much a work in progress. Please check back regularly and feel free to get in contact.
