Tiwi Beach, Kenya, Africa is where
Aussie Mike and Sabine have chosen

Anyone out there who thinks woodworkers are dull?
Mike describes his family below with particular reference to his Dad on the right.
"My family are all practical "Aussies". They can turn their hand to most things.
My father is 79 and still swims a kilometer every morning. He can play the
piano, clarinet, and he built his first house by himself, by hand!
Jack of all trades. Guess we are just environmentally adaptable people."
I'd say! So, again we prove that woodworking is in the genes.
Yes, folks, the picture on the left is a bit toothy, but Mike is friendly with the silverbacks. Mike was Australia's Most Eligible Bachelor in 1988. Below you can read how far he has traveled beyond that, as he tells us about life in Africa.
"I live in a part of
Kenya which, unfortunately, suffered from tribal problems in 1997. As
a result, my business suffered severly and many of our friends and
neighbors left. I had been here for almost 30 years and had no
intention of leaving.
