    Today I set a Milestone

    Good Morning Friends,
    Today I set a milestone because it was on this day in 1948 that I started serving my apprenticeship under my grandfather, who was a master woodworker. The reason was that we are Welsh and when a boy turned 13 years of age he would start serving his apprenticeship under his grandfather as it was the tradition to do so, and as you know ours was woodworking.

    I am the forth generation and last in my family still working in wood working but, my legacy will be carried on by those I have taught the trade to and I hope they remember me.
