Location: Zagreb, Croatia
I'm an Australian living in Croatia.
I'm actually a juggling street performer by trade but woodworking has been an on and off hobby ever since high school (25 years ago).
Finally I have a small workshop here in Zagreb and am accumulating tools slowly. Mostly I work with oak because it's the most available hard wood here.
Croatia is not a cheap place for woodworkers so I try to recycle as much wood as I can and make do with far less than ideal machines.
Hopefully over the next couple of years I can actually start to make a bit of a living from making things out of wood. We'll see.
