Well I guess I should introduce myself to you all!
Hi all, I’m Rick, I’ve always had a passion for wood, but after too many years of education and employment that I’d care to mention, in various industries I became dissatisfied with lining other peoples pockets. Sure a “regular pay check” means stability and all that; but in today’s world where there is no such thing as a job for life, it really only seems like short-term security to me. So after a rather unexpected life change i decided to do what i love doing, for myself!
I have a background in aerospace engineering, and always loved making things, sitting at a desk is vial in my opinion, get up and do something!
I have a modest workshop, and small turning room where I undertake small commissions and property maintenance. Each job regardless of how small gets the same attention to detail you would expect from someone who not only takes pride in what they do, but enjoys it too!
I have been my own boss now for nearly six years, nearly 4 of that working alongside those ‘other things’ I had to do between the hours of 9 and 5.
I will be posting projects and links on the site, so you can see whats in the pipeline, and how things are doing. Don’t forget to check out the other internet haunts to like, keekback and tweet about
hope you enjoy, feel free to comment, and become part of this woodworking haven.
