I've made furniture, cabinets and things all my life. Now I'm more interested in luthiery and playing music.
I have duel US / Aussie citizenship and have spent half my 68 years in OZ.

Machinery, hand power tools and hand tools are all the same for me...just tools, some have much more charm than others, but in the end, just a means to my ends.

These pics are late afternoon in the outdoor dining area of a little country pub, about 2hrs south of Brisbane. Zoey the cat is allowed anywhere in the pub except the bar tops and tables. The cat is part Manx. Not much to do with woodworking ...
I’m experimenting and just getting my feet wet with studio photography. Raw MDF is my backdrop for the time being, the lights are second hand but even new they don’t cost very much. The camera is set on auto but I can see for this so...
