Location: Brigg North Lincolnshire

Hello everyone
I came from South Africa 15 years ago as a BMW Technician but got out of that thankless job and am working now as a Maintenance Technician in Brigg. I live with my two young children who keep telling me that I spend too much time in the shed. Carpentry is a hobby which I have picked up over the last 5 years. Before that my only experience was wood shop in school in 1979 in South Africa. You could say that I have a box fetish. I do not like to spend money on wood - like to find old bits of wood and cut them open to see the grain and the knots. Because of the size of my shed, which I built from old pallets, I'm restricted to the size of things I can make - well that is my excuse to carry on making boxes.
