Location: Blackpool, North West England

A middle aged man living in Blackpool, North West England and working for the local authority as a transport professional.

We have a small child (b 11 07 06) who is taking all our time, money and attention at the moment. He is just super.

Outside of work, I enjoy: woodwork, making many things for the house; photography, when I get the chance; cycling, when my broken elbow heals; walks, particularly with our son; reading; cinema; beer and wine; good food - the finer things in life when I can get them.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Welcome to Lumberjocks…you’ve done some great things so far and wish I could put all the projects I created in my first shop up here…but now years after I have a second shop…better than the first…and I’m working towards the filling up of my projects column. It’s nice to see folks from all over the world joining. Hope you have a great time here!
