Bio
Born and educated in Australia, I later moved to Geneva, Switzerland where I lived and worked for 20 years. I quickly found out that the Swiss are absolutely 100% quality oriented and I readily adopted and fully agree with this way of thinking. The simple fact is that if it's not done "correctly" the first time it simply won't last... and usually ends up costing a lot more later!
During my time in Geneva I built up a large antique gallery, specializing mainly in furniture and other items which I imported from all over the Far East. As a result I became very familiar with many different architectural styles, and especially had an excellent opportunity to closely study the carpentry, joinery and finishing techniques employed by the traditional Japanese and Korean master craftsmen - which are truly "incredible" to say the very least!
All told I now have more than 34 years combined experience in fine woodworking, furniture design/building, repair, renovation and finishing.
