A few details about myself.
- I moved to New Zealand in 2006 from the UK so that my wife and I could be with our Daughter, Son in Law and 2 grand children who had emigrated here in 2001 also from the UK - I had been in the flooring trade all my working life laying hardwood floors for many years as well as vinyl and many other types of flooring - I have always been interested in timber of all kinds and around 3 years ago took up wood turning as a hobby - I got hooked on this and then tried my hand at Scroll saw work and Intarsia all of which I enjoy doing immensely - I started to then make small items of furniture and my interest in the router suddenly started to grow - I now find that between all the different fields of my hobbies I wonder how I ever found time to go to work. I enjoy reading all the different topics on this forum and look foreword to being a member.
