Location: Toowoomba, Australia

I am a 67 year old architect just going into retirement from my practice and getting ready to re-absorb myself in the pleasure of working with wood. I have always had a passion for designing and building things and the intention is that this will continue with making furniture and helping my kids with their houses, making toys for grandkids and exposing them to the values of spending time in the workshop, working safely with tools, discovering the visual and tactile beauty of timber, and the satisfaction of spending however much time it takes to make something as well as you can.
I am currently getting ready for my next step in life and this involves a new carport so I can kick the cars out of the garage and use it for my workshop. The only trouble has been that the carport (unfinished) is such a beautiful place to work in the shade on nice days that I might take that over as part of my workshop space and leave the cars in the street! Further discussion is required with the wife!
My first project is to make a workbench to replace the four sawhorses and bits of MDF board that I have used as a bench for the past 40 years. It is well on the way and I will post pictures of it at a later date for those interested.
Well that is a bit about who I am and I look forward to sharing experiences with you all and learning from some of the vast knowledge that is out there.
regards aussiegreg
