One of the benefits of the 2020-21 Covid lockdowns (if you can say there were any) was that I used the down time to fix up my long-neglected workshop and get back to a little bit of woodworking. Now that I’m retired (and older) I find I have much more patience for this hobby.

I am no master carpenter but I will use this website to show some of the projects I’ve created.


In March 2021, I bought a hobbyist CNC machine and taught myself how to use it (with lots of help from the interwebs). It’s a nice little machine, a Genmitsu 3018-PROVer from Sainsmart. I run it with software from Candle, UGS or my new favourite CNCjs. I make my designs primarily with Carbide Create or Easel.
