My name’s Olly Parry-Jones. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.
By the age of eighteen, I’d dropped out of my A-Levels in the midst of depression and found myself without a clue moving forwards. Some of those feelings remain today… But I enrolled on a Carpentry & Joinery college course than same year and soon discovered a passion for woodworking.
I soon took over my mum’s garage and crafted my own workshop over a number of years, kitting it out with a range of tools and machinery. I had to give that up in 2014, having made the decision to resume the life of living alone in rented accommodation. I’d like to have my own workshop again some day, but for the expense (currently) of renting somewhere in addition to my home and then there’s the issue of having time to use it all outside of a full-time job.
I still dabble in working with wood. My full-time job involves making furniture for a local wood recycling social enterprise and I’m happy to pick up DIY jobs and home improvement solutions as they arise.
Formerly, I’ve written about walking, hiking and camping on these pages but that all belongs on its own blog, Walks with Olly.
