My interest in woodworking started at an early age at school when I made a shoe cleaning box for my parents some sixty years ago which I have now inherited. Amongst other things, at the age of fourteen I made a kayak canoe, a model hovercraft and a guitar from plywood which wasn’t particularly easy to play. Although I never took up woodworking as a career it has always been part of my DNA.
Since those distant early days I have alway followed woodworking as a hobby and over the years I have made furniture, picture frames, doors, windows, stairs, gates, decking, a summerhouse and many things I have forgotten about.
I have played an acoustic guitar for many years and it has always been my dream to make an Archtop guitar and this is where I am today, in my workshop.
