Hello all, uh I hate these about me things but here I am filling it out so I guess its a perfect representation of the single minded borderline obsessive (Just quietly I think I jumped the fence to %100 obsessive a while ago) fascination with woodwork and overall creating I have. Id like to think I spend as much time working in my shop rather than on, but that would be a lie.
Im an electrician working in Melbourne, Australia so Im not sure if Im an alright woodworker for an electrician or an alright electrician for a woodworker. Either way, in my previous employment managing a warehouse I was lucky enough to get a constant supply of very old hardwood pallets. Which might not sound like an attractive source of timber but it was enough to get me started with little investment. Which I have so far used to make a couple dining tables, coffee tables, and endless picture frames, chopping boards, boxes etc.
Mostly though they have been used to build up my garage into something I'm proud of.
Like many woodworkers I've moved, rearranged, built and destroyed my space more times than I can count. I'll put together a small progression gallery or video, which I'm sure is of no interest to anyone but if it could be appreciated anywhere I'm sure its at lumberjocks. I'm not one to post on social media but it would be nice to share the things I'm working on. And if by chance the stars align and I'm able to just once have something valuable to contribute to helping someone else come up with a solution to a problem, the thousands of hours I spent in trial and error in my own shop will be worth it.

-- Cant wait to let myself finish working on my shed so I can force myself to start working in my shed.
