More about me:

Started off work in 1980 working on a farm in southwest Scotland my home country and my ambition then was to become a plant operator which I succeeded in doing on numeral contracts in Scotland. The big money syndrome kicked in and I moved down south in the 90s and progressed onto cranes and that is what I do now ie,Manager for engineering heavy lifts on varies major contracts throughout the UK, I have always wanted to work with wood as a hobby but i work away from home a lot so i dont seem to get the time at weekends other than holidays and then the missus is screaming at me too go abroad, I have no workshop as such only the use of a good friends yard where i potterabout,
