I arrived in Edinburgh in the early 70's to work in reproductive biology. I left this to become a wooden toy maker. During the 80's and 90's I started to make a number of craft items such as wooden boxes, plates of bacon and egg and big byrds, selling at craft fairs all over Scotland.

I somehow became side tracked into loft conversions and other home improvements but following hip and knee replacements, I've returned to my crafts. My new interests include both strange wooden items and the use of old computer parts. The recent purchase of a laser cutter/engraver has further expanded my range.

My biggest problem is getting ideas quicker than I can respond to them and collecting odd bits and pieces that may be useful 'one day'.
