Location: Feilding Newzealand

Hi, I moved to New Zealand with my wife and three children to start a new life or leave an old one. What i found has changed my life for ever.
After doing the level 5 diploma in Furniture Design and Making it UCOL i am now working in the industry and design and make furniture for a few clients. I am hopeing to enter a few exhibitions/compitions this year to get my name out there. My aim is to make a living out of furniture and this will help me to stay in New Zealand, the place we now call home.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
