Who am I? My name is Mike. I live in Toronto, Canada. I cook, I renovate, I build, I read. I’m a rhykenologist, which means I collect woodworking planes. And other woodworking tools – and I restore them. I also collect cookbooks, but there doesn’t seem to be a good word for that. Maybe I’m a culinarian?
I like model trains, although that’s more of a winter hobby. Only N scale, and mostly trains from Germany and Switzerland. I read mostly historical mystery and some thrillers… and lots of non-fiction from travel books to design, woodworking, crafts.
This blog focuses mostly on things that are made by hand, travel, maybe some reviews, recipes.
