  • Description

    Hey everyone! Luuk from Holland 33 years old. I went to the art academy, where I started working with wood. After the art academy I ended up in a big warehouse with other artists. For 7 years I tried to make it as an artist and it was going pretty well.

    But at one point I thought: is this it? So I sold all my wooden sculptures and went to Costa Rica to help build an enormous wooden cargo sailing ship. I was there for a year and after that I travelled around Central America and California. From Colombia I then stepped onto an engineless sailing ship, crossed the Atlantic Ocean and ended up back in Holland.

    Since then I've got my motorbike license, bought a motorbike and driven to Portugal. Now I'm on the road going to different workaway projects using my carpentry skiĺls along the way.

  • More details about your skills

    I know my way with mostly all tools. I worked with wood for many years, but also did some metal work. I love building stuff and when I work I go for it! Pretty much open for all kinds of work and learning new things. Don't mind hard/heavy work.
