I just have to share this amazing fellow from Australia with all of you.

He reminds me of what we do when we make a project without following someone else’s plan!

ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.......................Jim

No doubt because we are probably the most isolated place in the world, we have to learn to improvise Jim, but that young man, well he’s something very special. Thanks for sharing with a wider audiance.

I only wish I could do with wood what he does with his music!

95% of what I build for myself is “off” the top of my head with no plans, but he’s something else. Thanks for sharing that one with us.

Chooka lives about 40 miles from our town, a natural down to earth sort of guy who does a lot of free entertaining for charity and the elderly. His success on that show hasn’t spoilt him.

-- Bob C, Australia. I love sharing as long as it is not my tools

G’day, Bob,

Cheers…............Jim

I thought Chooka was a bit slow till he played the piano. He really is something else.
