My name is Patrick Owen and I have been involved in woodworking for about 25 years. For a lot of that time my wife Judith and I were living in Normandy, France where we painstakingly re-built an abandoned timber-framed cider press and gradually transformed it into a very attractive family house for ourselves and son Robert, now 13.

Judith is a teacher and Robert is a fine chef already and looks after us
both very well!
