Location: UK soon to be Spain in 4 Weeks for ever !!!!!

Well I stumbled into repairing Sash Windows some 12 years ago and well one thing led to another and I hung up my suit, tore the trousers, read a router manual and hey - have had a Factory for 4 years making Windows and thats me.

Factory cost too much to run, the extractor took half a day of 2 people just to empty all the bags and clean it out. went in without knowledge and thought I would become a millionaire.

Squashed a few fingers with large lumps of Kiln Dried Air Dried Oak beams as you do? 3 people lift kind of scenario. luckily they are still on my hands and I never lost any. Some real near misses with things like 10 hp planer knife coming out on a 80 year old J Sagar planer and throwing the blade through the cast iron table top plus sheering 10 bolts off.

buckets of Oak dust inhaled and then relationship breakup and lost interest for 6 months. Anyway it was not the right path for me, just a path.

Now I work from my mobile Workshop, making Motorhomes. Oak Shower tray and Oak Sinks fitted inside with Oak Windows too? Just so much time to do the Motorhomes nice if everything hand built.

Thats me.
