Location: Christchurch New Zealand

I'm a software development manager by profession which seems a million miles away from working with wood.

I was born and raised in Scotland ane emigrated to New Zealand (via 12 years in England) six years ago.

I'm certainly no expert, up until now I've been making do with an engineers vice and an old desk.
My workshop is my garage that I share with my partners multisport raceboats.

I reckon the first project I post will be the woodworkers vice I am currently working on.

My first experience of working with wood has been attending a furniture making course in Christchurch. This has been fun and I still attend every week however it does focus on the big machines and I am starting to become more interested in the hand tools (and smaller power tools).
