Location: New Zealand

originally a beekeeper in a family business where my interest in woodworking started. we always made our own equipment so it was a natural progression into dabbling in furniture making.we made a lot of mistakes along the way but learned alot as well.these days i'm a timber machinest for a gate making company...also a small family run business(not my family).so have expanded my skill base quite considerably.
i'm in the middle of restoring a 1934 bungalow to it's former glory so it occupies most of my woodworking for pleasure is also my life with both work and restoration projects....some call it living the most poeple i always want more than i can have buit limited by money and more so by space but i have still managed to make a few interesting pices for our house.
also into cars and one day i'm hoping to build a vw woody....after all the other jobs my wife has lined up for me

-- just get stuck in and have a go!!!
