Location: East Yorkshire UK

I first got interested in woodwork at the age of 11 (1963) I can still smell the aroma of mahogany the first time I walked in the shop,mmm
Anyway I had a rich & varied life done a lot of travelling in the navy started & run a business with some success & dabbled with wood all my life but I took woodworking up seriously in the mid 90's. Nowadays I try & make a living at capentry, house renovation & kitchen fitting I just scrape by I have a lovely wife who works in finance at the Fire brigade headquarters & two grown up sons & three grandchildren. I discovered Lumberjocks about a year ago & proved the old addage "You're never too old to learn" There are some really talented people here with fine skills & inspired ideas about what shape a piece of wood needs to be. I always look forward to logging (pardon the pun) on

Thankyou all for the welcome I have been woodworking for about 40 years now & inthat time I’ve built quite a lot of projects including 4 motorhomes but I have to say here in the UK we don’t seem to have the resources you have in the States & over the last year or so I have learnt more from the Finewoodworking site & people like Marc Spagnuolo of The Wood Whisperer than I have in the last 10 years you guys really have it nailed (pardon the pun ) so I’m looking forward to learning some more & sharing my efforts with you Happy new year to you all
Best regards

Your projects are fantastic. You are a great artisan, and craftsman. :). I did my first woodworking with an Uncle back in 1970 or 71. If I only would have hung out with my good ole Uncle Herm more, I really would be further “developed” in woodworking.
