Third Generation Woodworker

I’m a husband, father of five, three boys and two girls. and am a third-generation woodworker working wood with hand tools.

I was first introduced to the craft by my father at seven. He was a toy maker who made rocking horses, cradles and other childrens’ toys for retail outlets. I worked with him on weekends and built my first cradle a few weeks later.  I hadn’t realised then I had been bitten by the woodworking bug, and have been infected with the joy of working wood ever since.

I have a deep-rooted passion to build 18th century style furniture. This is something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time.

The purpose of this blog is to share with you what little knowledge I have of the craft.

In a nutshell, I’m just a regular guy who is trying to do his part for humanity and the craft I love so dearly.
