In Response To: Re: Introducing myself to the forum (Peter Dale)

Hiya Roger. Your take, expressed so well, should be food for thought although as a complete novice who has probably learned more from this forum than anywhere else, I want to say something. For all your professional expertise, and that is significant to say the least, you miss an important point that has to do with people rather than, say, refinishing / refubishing antiques. That is, some of us bumbling moronic DIYers actually LIKE the idea that we are in fact doing it ourselves--as a sort of project involving the acquisiton of new skills, a sense of accomplishment etc etc. Many of us actually could pay some professional to do it if we so chose, but relish the personal challenge and value, highly, the opportunity to talk about it with professionals and other bumkins like ourselves.
