Finally I found the edit button. Slow, but progress none the less. Here we go – Michael, 45 years old, happily married with two teenage sons. I dabble to various extents in various areas but love books and the shelves they rest on. Forgetful. How forgetful? No idea. I do like working with timber, and being asthmatic, I do like to use natural finishes, but no expert, its a learning process. These finishes take more effort, but work as well as synthetics.Study of archaeology is full time now. Mostly here it will be about the shelves, but for the books side – old travel books, history, fantasy, old science fiction, some sciences, building, some “classic” (Classic being shamelessly defined as – old and I like it) fiction and odds and ends. A more recent addition is archaeology in its messiness and glory. Hope you enjoy this.
