Technical product manager, software developer, writer and maker from Wicklow, Ireland.

I love to write and to make things — including music — and I love anything mechanical, cars, tools, tractors, you name it!

This blog is a simple collection of thoughts and projects. Some of the projects are things that were necessary for our small-holding, most are to try and save money because there’s not much of that in our world.

Personal favourites are my Christmas movies set of posts and any project where I acquire a new skill like the boot jack project were I made my first jig for a router table.
