Location:Galgate, Lancaster, England (UK)
Age:Just a boy (60)
Personal Quote:I'm an amateur woodworker of 10 years; built about 150 pieces. I prefer American arts & crafts (Mission, G&G) or Shaker as well as Cotswold school (Gimson, Barnsley). The height of my current WW ambition is to build a set of G&G chairs using traditional joinery and hand tools where possible. But I will always use machine tools for everyday stuff. Woodwork is play, for me.
Authors:Andy Rae Mike Dunbar Mario Rodrigeuz
Books:Men in Sheds Any modern Taunton book Graham Blackburn's handtool & dessign books
Movies:Make a Chair From a Tree Lee Valley router table demo
TV Shows:There are none about WW in Britain.
Type of Music:The hum of a good TS; the sound of a sharp drawknife slicing green wood. The wind in the trees up the fells.
Food:Thought-gruel and chocolate (you can live on red wine and chocolate, for a while at least).
