Retired CFO of a men’s apparel company – recently started my second career making fine custom furniture, specializing in high poster beds. My dad was a master craftsman for over 60 years, so I learned woodworking at an early age. (and at 93 he still tells me how to do things) . The truth be known, however, I really love the process more than the resulting products, i.e. the tools, the jigs, the methods, the shop, the pontificating, the brotherhood, etc, etc.
Still, I like to make a little money so I can keep this hobby going, take a few classes, and to help for my other expensive hobbies of hunting, and season tickets to Mississippi State football and baseball games.
My goal is to make furniture that will be here when I am long gone., furniture that will be handed down from generation to generation, that will be the antiques of tomorrow.
