Location: Graz, Austria
Website:

Born on the east side of the Alps on Jan. 31st, 1985, raised on Ontario's west coast, on lake huron's shores!
Now back to my roots in old Europe for some university education (mech. engineering)
Since the time I could glue together popsickle sticks I've been cutting, nailing and glueing scraps and odds and ends of wood together. Made my first chair when I was 11 (grandmother's 75th birthday present) and have been trying to (with mixed success) assemble nature's fibre in some fashion or other.
Current projects: making a decent shop out of a more or less neglected garage...pic's of my beginnings and progress will follow!
