New comer from Malvern

Postby Chunkymunky » Sun Feb 17, 2013 8:49 am

Hello,

I'm allister. I am currently work as a surveyor of waterways all over the country. In my free time I wood turn and do cross country events.

I don't currently own woodland although I do help in other people's woods including my uncles which is 6-7 acres. I am looking to get my own wood in the near future whether it be rent or own outright. At the moment I am happy to help others locally to gain some skills, knowledge and experience. I am currently buying tools and a trailer to collect wood for my father through contacts I've made. Not looking to profit from anyone is like to say just to get out there and enjoy it a bit.

Powered at the moment. I am going on a woodland pole lathe course in a few months locally which I am really looking forward to.
