Location: London, UK

Texan transplant in London. Still coming to grips with not having a garage or most of my tools. Have created a makeshift outdoor storage/workspace (from found beams, floorboards, and pallets!) covered with a tarp in an unused space on the back/side of my little London flat. It's still unfinished and in need of much work which I have no one to help with. Alas, I married a very unhandy-man, bless him.

I currently work with wooden furniture as a hobby, eventually hoping to sell finished pieces.

I enjoy rehabilitating wooden furniture, especially quality older furniture. Scavenging for neglected/unwanted treasures. Repairing, sanding, finishing. Paint and homemade stains. Power tools. Working with my hands. Being creative. Artistic finishes. Texture. Quality. The smell of old wood & freshly sanded wood.

Waste reduction and sustainability in all arenas are very important to me. I avoid buying new when possible, and am a huge proponent of REPAIRING. I am completely against planned obsolescence and the dominant "throwaway" mentality.
