I have always had an interest in most types of woodwork. Many years ago I spent a few years of my youth in the UK, and was lucky enough to make friends with a highly skilled cabinetmaker come high class shopfitter. Whenever I could I would help him out on many weekend projects and he taught me to appreciate working with good tools and good timber. As craftsmen go, he was the genuine article.As a teacher, he was incredible......That was 50 years ago.
In the last few years I have collected a few more tools, a few bits of machinery and now, in semi retirement I am happy to just fiddle a little in the shed. I do like using the beautiful wood we have here in Australia.......
