Trade - Cabinetmaker

Started woodwork in year 8 at school and fell in love with it. Started school based apprenticeship in year 11 at 15 and worked for just over a year before I got laid off due to decline in business. Started full time apprenticeship in Jan 2004 and qualified March 2007 as Cabinet Maker.

Had my son in 2009, and so started building furniture from home, did Cert IV in TAFE so I can teach. Now doing volunteering teaching children with disabilities basic woodwork skills. Hoping to get more teaching work this year(2018). Mostly I make really cool LEGO tables for my son and other people with insane amounts of storage built in and toy boxes.
