Hi, my name is Nico Botes and I am The Crazy Oak.

I am a 24 year old male from South Africa. I studied Actuarial Science and am working at a bank as an analyst.

But the important part about me for this blog is that I do woodwork and woodcarving as a hobby. This is my blog where I share my journey with you with regards to my woodwork.

My hobby and career are worlds apart but that is what makes it so interesting and fun. I am no expert, and still new at this thing called woodwork but I really enjoy it and will share my journey none the less.
