About Me

Hello and welcome to Boa Online. I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for coming to my website and wanting to find out more about me on this page!

My name is Doug Benson and I am a retired carpenter who likes nothing more than to get out into the garden shed at the end of my garden and get creative with some wood and a bunch of tools. Having spent the majority of my life working with wood, I feel that I am quite good at using it to my advantage and of building some nice pieces out of it.

Although I am now retired, I still like to do things but at least now it is all on my own time and I don’t have any jobs that I don’t want to do. I can stop at any time for a cup of tea and cake break…I do like to help other people out so I do, from time to time, take on small jobs. Perhaps for neighbours who want a something bespoke building in their home or family who need some work doing and don’t trust the carpenters that they have seen around.

What’s on This Site

I started up this site because not only do I need to improve my computer skills to stay up to date with my grand children, but I also like the idea of being able to share ideas with everyone in the World. Just how it works I’m not 100% sure just yet but what I’ve been told is that I can write articles on this site and once they are published they will be visible by anyone who comes to my site. I am going to write about many different topics, just anything that I feel like really. Most of it will be wood related, but I will also talk about energy conservation, DIY in the home and various other topics that come up in day to day life.

If you have anything that you would like to ask me please get in touch with me using the Contact Page.
