Hi There, Just like to introduce myself been a newbie, My full time job is been a Construction foreman. Building anything from multi-million dollars homes to commercial buildings to restoration work on historic buildings (churches Barns Homesteads etc). So I am building all day and was a motorcycle rider in my spare time for stress relief, That was until I was knocked off a ladder at work and broke my neck. I was one of the lucky ones to walk away but need an operation to repair a broken vertebrae. the surgeon suggested to give up the bike.
I now do marquetry on the boxes and other items I build in my garage as my new hobby to give me stress relief and interest.
