Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

I know how hard it is to find things in Taiwan. Even though my wife is Taiwanese, she doesn't often understand what I'm looking for because people here are just not into DIY. Not like in the US where you just run to Home Depot. We recently decided to remodel our house and fortunately we found an excellent carpenter. He is reasonable, reliable and hard working and has about every tool imaginable and can build most anything. Above all, he is a perfectionist. I can provide his phone number if you need a carpenter. Forgot to mention that I live in Xizhi, New Taipei City. I believe that the Carpenter will work anywhere in the greater Taipei area. Sorry for the Omission.

What city, please?

(Note: if everyone would add their location in their profile, this frequent question would become unnecessary.)

I thought you were looking for a carpenter. Its hard to even find quality construction wood in Taiwan though.

Unfortunately I don't do general carpentry (as in installing shelves, making cabinets, etc.) but I do fine carpentry like making signs, letters, wooden trinkets, etc.

I don't have any contractor tools to do general carpentry, just lots of hand plane and hand chisels and rasps for making guitars.
Cat-gut strings are made from kitten guts, stretched out to near breaking point and then hardened with grue saliva. As a result these give a feeling of Pain and anguish whenever played, and often end up playing themselves backwards as part of satanic rituals.
