Location: Croatia

Moved to Australia when I was a kid. Electronic engineer by degree, worked in hardware and firmware design at the beginning and then in telecommunications in software design, quality and product management in Australia and Germany. Moved back to country of birth, worked in maintenance of PC / optic fiber network, food production machines and lastly in personal and fire safety.

Now I'm out of work and am taking the opportunity to both finish the woodwork in the house and build up my workshop and woodworking skills to the level at which I can satisfy my creative needs.

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
