Location: Young NSW , Australia

I started woodworking at an early age as my father was a carpenter and I used to play with the left over wood -"making things & helping" !!! I did a woodworking course at school and made a spinning wheel amongst other things. I had a hiatus when I had a family and had many other things to occupy my time. When my only daughter went to school I had some spare time so I took up scroll sawing.

I started carving in approximately 2011 when I had life changing motorbike accident. It was something I could sit and do, a little or a lot to suit my energy levels at the time.
I started carving a lot in 2020 after being asked to carve a Blue Wren. That was the start of my bird carving journey. I have learnt a lot from carving birds and there is always something new to learn.
I love working with wood

Inside my workshop, projects I'm working on.

God Bless

I like your scroll work and congrats on the new tools. I think if you build a nice rough splintery bed pan you won’t have to clean up after those oldies as much.

Welcome to LJ’s and I thing we have a wrench for every nut that comes here. It can be a great experience and if you are looking boxjoints it is probably here somewhere.
