About: How did I become a woodworker? Actually I don't know, but I love the loud noise of power tools, clouds of floating dust, and creative freedom so much...Of course it's a hobby for me, but it gives everything ...

Summer is really my favourite time of year, so to spend much time outdoors we created an own garden sofa. It's not only easy but also cheap. ;)Check and enjoy it!
