Location: Marstal on ÆRØ (aeroe) a island in Denmark south of Fyn
Website: not yet

I am living (for) on a little island south of Fyn in Denmark in scandinavien call by the name ÆRØ (aeroe)
and the city is very small only about 2500 people and the name is Marstal and that name is pretty good nown around the wold as they ceep on telling me (move from jutland to here 1999)

as for living am driving taxi for now (last 17 year´s and before bus and truck`s all over uerope and mittle east even in the old eastblok off europe (nerly even born in a taxi my father was independent taxidriver over 50 year´s) it´s seems those wheels stick to a man but now I will try to chance carriare (maybee woodworking off a kind)
my interrest is (hold on folks)

off course my duaghter(9 year) and Swambo
elektronic (was a carriare before and accident 1981(fightet back from wheelchair))
read electronic in the Danish Airforce back then after I got back from the accident was I the driving service man in different radio/televisionshop for a cupple of year´s

R/C airplane´s and little in shipmodeling too learn it from somefammelymember when I was only 12 year old in Germany (not since 2000 of remodelling aur hause and a 24 aur´s bisness (Taxi) stop in 2006 Swambo got hit by cancer but she is back lucky mee.

Foto the old way going in the darkroom and make Black/white pictures with a botle of redwine beside me its quit relaxing to do it the old way also when i take the picture´s with my RB 67 camera on a trifote.

love to read books (not the bestsellers) but tecnicalbooks,scientificbooks,scholarybooks and magasin´s (like popolar mechanic, do it by your self (the older the books and magasin the better like to here what some of the old master´s have to say.
not trying to down sice anybody I still lay down for some of the newer marster´s

my woodworking experince and interrest come I think back in 1972 when I was ten my mother and farther built there own hause (they even now what a hammer was at that time) that´s what i call to bee pioner´s
it´s a brickhause but still
in highschool I learnt to use the basic tools and even built 3 bigger furniture (big hanging wallcase (ply), a relaxing chair and a arts and craft table with tile´s both in (I think the name is pine dam those english words too long time since I got aut of school)
when I was a young man in the twenty`s me and seven other buddy work on aur hauses on shift and aur fammely´s as well we make what we call workweekend´s and work 16 people (remember the girl´s when you do that) and the hauseowner give only the food as payment (dam forgot I also had to paid for foot too) anyway it´s fun to work that way
I was the electric,painter,wallpaper,carpenter man and now after I had move to another part of the cuntry I have to do it all by my self (swambo don´t have the interrest in that stil love her) so I had to learn abuat brick´s,plastre and plumming not much wood in this hause only floor´s and some trim around the door´s
the kitchen is design´d by swambo and me but is from some kitchencompany who made it even that they had on the program and I just build the kit in the room
funny I think so now as I remmember it was just 2 weeks before we moved in my belovet swambo it´s that my kitchen (just a big hole down to the celler and thrugh the loft to the 3d floor

that´s why Iam a LumberJock

Hello, Dennis,
Welcome to LJ`s. It is nice to see another Dane on board with us. Particularly as all of the `Best Designs and Manufactured products of Timber` originate from Danmark.
Have a look at my details. Although my Family originated in Norway, we lived in Frederiksborg, in Hilleroed (no Danish letters on my keyboard) My Father was born in Ebsbonderup, and other Family members all over Danmark, mainly Aarhus, and in USA and Canada.
Good luck with your progress, you will get there. By the way, I have not been acquainted with the Name of your Wife, Swambo, before. From where does it originate ???
