Hi Guys

My name is Thinus van Vuuren. I'm from the best country in the world SOUTH AFRICA.

I'm 24 years old and i love wood working. Sadly i don't have 15 years of experience only 4.
My dad has his own wood working company which started out as his hobby in his garage later turned into his full tine job.

in 2010 I matriculated
at the end of 2011 i started at my fathers work shop, he had all the machinery you would find in normal workshops, Thickness and surface planer table saw drill press drum sander molder/4 sided plainer.

In February 2014 I started a training course in wood machining and Cabernet making NQF level 2 which is a 15 week program or 15 months depending on long or short cores.

I took the longer course the 15 months one and was privileged enough to see myself finish my course 5 months early (due to my experience I gained at my dads work shop.)

At the end of my course I was offered a position at the training felicity winch i accepted.
Right now I am a Technical Facilitator and mentor at this great company. I'm Currently doing my NQF level 2 in wood finishing. followed by Cabinet making Level 3

MSG me if you have any queries about anything wood or finishing related. i'm not an expert but I'm working hard to be the best i can be and compete with international companies and people
