Hi, Woodfather here!
My name is Mario Cappellano; I’m from Melbourne, Australia where I live with my wife and our 3 children. I have a full-time job that has nothing to do with woodworking. I make things from wood because it’s fun and I enjoy the time it gives me with my children, it’s as simple as that.
I’m not a professional and make absolutely no claims as to being one! I don’t plan to ever make a living from woodworking but all I really want is to be known as ‘that guy that makes wooden toys and stuff.’ 🙂 High expectations I know.
While I try to make everything as nice and as good quality as I can, I don’t get upset when things don’t work out as planned. I just enjoy doing it, my children are great for positive reinforcement, they always like what I make, so long as I let them help me. And generally, things come out looking nice.
Basically I just love playing with my kids and playing in the garage with my tools. I wanted to spend more time doing both, so I decided to start this site and document the projects I make with or for my kiddies.
