I started off helping a friend of my parents build houses as a summer job when I was a kid. I continued to build houses off and on until I ended up in Richmond VA, at VCU. I began to restore the old homes around the campus. After several years of doing this I went to work for a cabinet man who trained me to run his shop. I did this for the better part of 10 years. Now I stay at home and take care of my children. My wife was generous enough to let me have the garage as a shop and I have slowly been filling it with tools. As a cabinet man I began by getting the large power tools I felt I would need. I have spent my time making small boxes and learning to carve. I am finding that I enjoy learning how to use hand tools more than I ever had in the past. And so my adventure continues.....
