After bartending for about a decade, I needed a change. Then came my daughter Ella, what a perfect excuse to quit the bar. I landed a job building tattoo machines with my good friend and now I don't ever want to go back. One side effect of my new job was that after years of pouring cheap beers and arguing with patrons over $4 at a time, I wanted to create things. I limped bye for a year with all of my friends half broken and free tools, but this last year I built my own shop and look forward to the time I spend in it every day. I'm currently building custom guitar cabinets and gearing up towards acoustic drums and furniture. Cheers.
