As I couldn't edit my first post I thought I would add a bit about myself.

Born 66 years OK in Leicester, UK. (which is about 100 mile north of London)

Spent most my life in removal and storage, moving people around the UK.

Now I have retired I am into woodwork and have just started wood turning, which so far I am enjoying.

I am also interested in graphic design, though I don't class myself as an expert.

I do like to build my own computers, again not an expert, but they do work once finished (which is a plus)

Chess board and table, made with recycled wood, mainly pallets

Small side table. again made with pallets

wooden turned egg cup, my first attempt at turning.

G'day Les and welcome aboard.  (or perhaps with a Yak that should be 'Welcome astride'? 

Seems a lot of you old retired fellas get into woodwork. It is quite relaxing and rewarding I'd reckon.
Another mate of mine is also into it and was visiting a farmer recently and has thus obtained a free supply of camphor wood - a pile higher than he is!

Nice work - those pics you posted mate. Well done.

The computers I have built also work - as you say a bonus :)
