  • Hello All

    Hello, I have just given up my first trade as a gas engineer due to knee joint problems & am now trying to develop my arty side with my new driftwood / reclaimed wood business which i've been running alongside for the past year with help from my wife. It's difficult getting established but i'm determined to make it work. I've never joined a forum before so hopefully using it will gradually become easier. It doesn't help when your'e a bit of a technophobe!
    We regularly exhibit at a craft fair at Alton in Hampshire which we have found mostly successful, so if anyone wants the details let me know. Anyway, thanks for reading this & hope to speak soon. Mike.

        Thank you for your messages. I make mirrors, candle sconces & various items of furniture mainly from driftwood but also from salvaged wood. I am a great believer also in salvaging from skips as people throw away the most fantastic timber which often needs a lot of stripping off, but results can be very rewarding. I have put my website on my profile but it doesn't seem to be showing. I'm not sure if i'm allowed to include it in messages. Maybe someone could help me with that please? Thank you

          Hi Michael and to the forum, best of luck in your new adventures and if you go into the User CP area again but click onto edit signature (think thats what it says) you can put your web address as part of your sign off - then it'll appear at the end of your messages so we can go have a looksee

            That's great, Thanks for your help.
            My problem is I work with my hands & don't do well sitting at a computer!
            I'll try adding it now.

              Right, all done hopefully! Not quite sure about the slogan but at least the website should be there.

              Thanks for your help.

                See, you do alright sitting at a puter too!

                Just visited your site and store, you make some very beautiful things. My brother bought an old converted barn and I always said if it were mine, I'd love to have big pieces of driftwood on the walls, it'd suit it perfectly
