Location: Palmerston North New Zealand

I am a tutor/lecturer at Universal college of learning in Palmerston North NZ.
I have taught for over 8 years and worked as a furniture maker/machinest for 15 years.
We run a 2 year diploma in furniture making and design with open entry.
I love working with wood. I love passing on my knowledge and learning new techniques.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
