Welcome aboard David. Used to dream of having wood to spoil. But after getting up 3 hours before going to bed, walking 20 mile to school in the snow with no boots and licking road clean with tongue, our poor old da didn't have a rough branch to make a fire with.

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

Great to have another voice with a passion for making better wood creations.

So, why does your bio say "Australia"?

That's where I live currently. Moved over in 2012 after we lost our house (and suburb) to the Christchurch earthquakes.
It was for mental health reasons mostly. It was taking too much of a toll on my wife and I, and this is where we felt led to go.

Seriously! I never stopped to think about why all these young Oz tourists who show up to work at our ski resorts during our Winter ski season, were/are pretty good skiers.
