I, Bill, am a qualified/accredited cabinet maker and furniture restorer. I have a passion for traditional crafts and teach various aspects of making & restoring. I feel that our health & quality of life is enhanced by working practically, making and learning new skills. At a time in society, when consumerism has take hold, we throw too many things away and do not appreciate materials or nature. We must make better and restore more. We need more relaxing workbench time and less screen time!
