Location: Doncaster, Melbourne, Australia

73, going on 74. Started carving Christmas 2010, have built two fully carved large rocking horses since, complete with leather bridles and saddles that I designed and made. Designed and built some trivets based on map of Australia and working on another pattern atm. Now made third table and stool set of red and white toadstools for grand-daughters and have interest from creches and kindergartens about setting up fairy gardens. Could be fun. Set up a workshop under the front verandah with heap of portable power saws plus drill press, band-saw, scroll saw, engravers, lathe. Married 51 years, 6 children, 16 grandchildren (one deceased, unfortunately at age 6 weeks). Keen learner, artistic bent (oil and acrylic paintings around the place of scenery and portraits) and Intarsia intrigues me

Thanks for all the greetings. Having trouble finding how to reply individually to A1Jim,surfin2,snowyRiver and Max. Never mind, I am sure I shall get there.

Blown away by the wonderful work some of you do. Inspirational! Had an idea yesterday that I want to share. Here in Aussie, old pianos – ivory veneered keys, ebony sharps and flats – are being dumped and actually sledge-hammered to death at auction houses. I have seen this on video. Try local auction houses and recover ebony keys for eyes etc. I want to do a dragon-fly for a grand-doughter’s bedroom wall and the pic I am after to get the colours right shows a lot of black detail, hence the thought.
