I am 73 years old and live about a one hour north of Sydney. I first started eating and breathing sawdust in 1955 when I was apprenticed to an ex Royal Navy shipwright as a cabinet maker. His yarns about life in the Navy were more exciting than dovetail joints so after three years I quit and joined the Royal Australian Navy.
I resigned after 21 years (including a stint as an EOD diver in Vietnam) and got myself into the OH & S industry. My hobbies after leaving the Navy were Leatherwork, Scrollsaw work, Woodcarving, Ships -in-bottles, minature ship models,
Ropework, Archery and fishing.
I have been making small jewellery boxes with leather on the lid as well as hand carved designs. I quite often use leatherwork patterns for ideas for carving.
