I was born in Baghdad, Iraq 1947 and was interested in woodwork from my childhood when my mother bought me the first hand scrole saw.
It was my favourite toy unlikely for children in their 8 years of age. In my high school years I was good and interested in math, geometry and inparticular in algebra. But the wind was against the ship in which I was traveling and I could not go further than finishing high school in 1964, when I started to work to suport myself.
From Baghdad to Kuwait and Germany and then Australia in 1974 which I proudly call home, I worked hard in many not related to woodwork jobes. But, all that time and everywhere I was, my interest in wood had never faded. I was waiting for the first opportunety to start doing something out of timber, anything.
I took up woodturning and without any kind of training ,alone, I began turning until I joined The Sydney Woodturners about 15 years ago.
I am a very active member of our region. Macarthur, and known as the one who turned the sooccer ball.
The more I turn wood the more I love this hobby, but in the same time I lose interest in any project I repeat for third or even the second time, unless with a better idea or some changes.
I, also, enjoy complicating the project I attemt to work on because I find biger challenge and I like challenges.
I had few public appearances in local newspapers and an article in Australian Woodworkers magazine about how to turn a soccer ball, and another one in the same issue under' Sam Shakouris Adventurs in Segmented Turning.
Well fellows woodturners, you will recognize my character when you visit www.sydneywoodturners.com.au and go to my page after clicking on Gallery Of Members Works. You will see more than 50 photos of my work alone, and those are only FEW of what I have at home.
Keep turning safely.

I found the number of vewers for the Pipe Holder, at 295 and only 1 time favorited, was very good sign for antismoking campaigners who I’m one of them, comparing these numbers with my previous project Curiousity, the 4FD, at more than 4500 ...
