Here's my new and updated web page. This is the first major re-engineering of my web site since 1999, with a new layout and finally, with my own domain name.
On the following pages, you will find ideas on DIY topics of interest to me, from Astronomy, to Trains, Photography and Music.
In addition, a gallery of some of my photography, taken with a variety of vintage cameras to the latest digital SLR's.
If you have a specific question about one of my DIY projects, please use my Blog page, as I am sure many others have the same query.

In this age of an endless onslaught of cheaply made consumer items, my basic philosophy is to make/hack most of the "tools" needed for my various interests/hobbies. This can range from home made panoramic camera, telescopes, to midi controllers. Throughout the following pages, you'll find details on some of my designs. Hopefully, this will be an inspiration on your own DIY projects.
Unfortunately, none of the projects are for sale. Nor do I have the time to "custom" build any of the designs. I would encourage you to try these projects, as most are not really that difficult. You'll be amazed what you can build with your own hands.
