My name is Daryl Lister, im 39 and have been living here in the Philippines for the last four and a bit years. Originaly from New Zealand I spent 11 years in Queensland Australia when the company I worked for made the move here. That furniture company eventually went bust and I was left here high and dry but decided I liked the place to much to give up on it so I tried to start my own company and after two years of hunger and struggle it,s finally happened. Outside of woodworking my other big passion is my faith, my family and anything on two wheels.
