An engineer and economist by profession and a woodworker by choice; I've been making things from wood for as long as I can remember. Love making furniture of all kinds. Favourite woods include Honduras mahogony and American cherry, but steam bending larch is fun too.

Projects past and present: Currently building a traditional clinker rowing/sailing boat - oak, larch and mahogony as my winter project; and a long-case clock (grandaughter size) - in mahogony with satinwood and box cross banding inlays. Past projects include: hardwood garden furniture - in mahogany, metamorphic library steps/chair - in cherry, dining table - in beech, kitchen workstation - in beech and ash; and the usual range of hosehold DIY work from built-in wardrobes to bookcases.

Tools: Axminster heavyduty workbench, bandsaw, tablesaw, morticer, pedistal drill, router table, chopsaw, planer-thicknesser mostly arranged so I can move them around the limited space I have - our (ex) garage. Dust extraction fitted throughout. Mix of Veritas and Clifton planes plus an old wooden jack plane, which I find ideal for roughing out boards; Japanese hand tools also figure highly in my tool box especially chisels and handsaws and I have one Japanese smoothing plane (can't remember the Japanese name), which I use for final finishing on narrow timber as it cuts beautifully and holds its edge. Oh and I still have some of my grandfather's tools.
