Location: North Carolina

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.....

Really nice boxes Joey, I agree with the hand tool side of things.. I started out by buying every power tool I could get or afford and then spent the last three years trying not to use any of them.. now its pretty much just the table saw and when needed the band saw.. working on a treadle powered band saw so I can get rid of the electric one.. good luck with the boxes, keep up the good work..

I once made a pine coffin for a family cat, we’d had her for 16 or so years. It tore me up to make just that, so I’m not sure I could make a coffin or urn for someone even if it is one of the highest compliments. That said, this is truely awesome.
