Its been couple of years I'm in here. After done my graduation in footwear engineering from Dhaka University I did job as designer in ABC Footwear Industries. I left that company. Month Later I open a workshop for myself. Started making leather jackets, belts, bags and shoes. Here is my company link named RAVEN.

I'm okay and happy. :)

Own a welding and machine shop business with my brother. 

Had to retire last year for medical reasons ( stage 4 cancer) ..had a relapse and Dr said no more. 

So now I'm teaching myself leather craft. 

Also make knifes as a hobby.

I call myself a tradesman. I tried to get out of being a carpenter my entire career. So, I'm an industrial electrician, remodeling carpenter, framer, trim man, shade tree plumber, machine repairman, appliance installer, pretty much a little bit of everything.

I currently work for a floor covering store that has a granite shop and remodels showers and kitchens.

Oh yeah, I'm also a granite man. I love getting to do something different every day.

Trained as a boilermaker straight out of skool from 1981 - 1984, worked in pubs, hotels, casino and bars for a few years, then I started working in hardware stores. Currently I am working as an Emergency Medical Response Officer which means I am basically a Licensed Security Officer who has some medical and emergency training, Been doing this around 25 years I think.

 

Kindest regards

I work for a distribution company specializing in HVAC and plumbing! My husband runs cattle so on the weekends Im just about anything he needs me to be, one day it may be fence fixer, next day may be calving helper! I squeeze in leatherwork when I get home from my 8-5 and when I can escape on the weekends!
