Location: Werribee, Victoria, Australia.

1948-74 Worked in sawmills for this 26 yr. span in various places in Victoria and New South Wales.
1974-99 Chemical Plant Operator for this 25 yrs. At Altona Petro Chemical Co.

Retired now, aged 77yrs. Married, Three sons.
My hobbies are Wood Turning, and messing about with wood generally,
I get interested in the vegetable garden a bit. Thinking of having a go at growing veggies hydroponically.

Have only been turning for a couple of years so my work is not anything to write home about. I am a member of the Werribee Woodturners Club.
Last year I won the clubs Most Improved trophy. (when starting from such a low base, it is not hard to improve)

That's about all anyone would be interested in I'd reckon.

Hey there all of you fellars,
I don’t think I’ve ever been made feel more welcome any where, any time, I thank you all.

I am not terrible good at the computer thing, but as soon as I figure out how I will put some pictures up of my work. Just now I am busy finding my way round the key board, and having a look at this site.

Thanks again for the big welcome mat you laid out for me.
