Location: Ivory Coast / South Africa

Work in the Ivory Coast but live in South Africa. This means that I do not get home very much. I got interested in working with wood about 25 years ago when a colleague was given some old oregan pine from the inside of a railway coach. I knocked up a small cabinet and then a second one. Then I bought an old dilapidated armchair for a couple of cents and started to refurbish. These were all in the days when I lived and worked from home.

Time went by and I started to expat. Needless to say, I had no time for woodwork anymore, although the urge was still there. Met my new wife :) , and hit the big 50.

Realised that after 19 years of expating, I need a break. So, we are taking a 3 month break from November and will be building a wooden deck, outside table, bench and who knows what else. I had to go and buy all the tools again - they are waiting at home :)
