Default New From Brasil

Hey All

My name is Ari (60) and I'm from Brasilia, Brasil.

I love woodworking and I'm new to Festool.

I'm here to learn and share and I hope you guys be patient whit my poor English...

My curent tools are Domino XL - T15 - Assembly packageSYS 1 CE-SORT and I'm having a very good time using then.

Thank you very much.

Ari Cunha

Welcome, Ari!!! We're looking forward to seeing your projects here! Feel free to jump in and comment or ask questions.

My wife & I hosted an exchange student from Teresina 18 years ago. Where in Brazil are you located?

Wino!

Thank you for your nice welcome.

I leave i Brasília, the Capital since 1958. It was inaugurated in 1960. My father came to found the first city newspaper and works there until today!! I got used to challenges....

My son was also a exchange student. He went to Elkhart, Indiana. I sent a boy and received back a man. It was an amazing experience for us. And We also received a student from Michigan. She is married now, two kids and is coming soon!! I will know my "grandsons"...

As you say, only Water separates the people of the world.

Once again Wino, thank you very much.

Best from

Ari

Welcome, Ari! So wonderful of you to introduce yourself. We have a great group of people here, and hopefully we'll be able to help you out if you have questions - on just about anything. Even Festool!

Good luck on your slide down the slippery slope that is Festool. It's probably safe to say that we all thought we'd stop at one tool. Silly us. I have two Sysports full, and more tools that won't fit in the Sysports. I think Fred just got his 9th Sysport! Don't try to compete with Fred - he'll always win!

What kinds of woods do you work with in Brazil? We're looking forward to seeing your stuff!

And again, welcome!

Hi Ari,

Most of us native English speakers have poor English skills too! You'll fit right in, welcome.

I wish I had access to the hardwoods that you have growing around you (at a reasonable price). Most of the really good stuff is export controlled, and what does get out is extremely expensive.

Make sure to post pictures of your creations.

Poto, thank you for your warm welcome!

Festool is a disease for me...

I'm a hi grade toolaholic and it's a shame but I think I prefer tools then woodwork... OK, a confess ...

No, not at all, just kiding. Now I will make some nice doors using the Domino XL and will post here.

About woods. MDF, TS and other material are changing the game here. Yes, the exotic wood country now is the MDF country.

There are some hard to find woods like ipê, sucupira, mogno etc, that some times we can get. But every day is becoming more difficult. Bad news.

¡Aí! Bemvindo a neste forum, Jobinho! Aqui temos vário sorte de quasi-homems, e vário sorte de bom....e outro... avisos, recomendações e opiniões.

And, as others already have said, tenho muito celoso do seu oportunidade de adquirir some fantastic types of woods that exist in your region. I have a wonderful book in my collection, "Árvores no Brasil", that gives great descriptions of some woods that we consider exotic.

In fact, I have two copies. If any of our wood-impoverished American colleagues would like one, let me know. Each page is in both Portuguese and English....
