Location: Flatonia Texas
Website:

Long journey to get here, but glad I've made it. Working in Austin Texas for almost 11 years before I outgrew my brand new workshop in less than a year, and got tired of the traffic and taxes.

So here I am in little ole Flatonia Texas, a town of 1377 great people. They have a nice little Market Days quarterly and a HUGE Czhili Cook Off the last full week of October called CzhiliSpiel, been going on for 36 years so far.

I got lucky to buy two very old historic buildings here, with a total of 8800 sq ft so I hope I don't out grown this shop anytime soon. Looking at establishing a little woodworking community here, taking advantage of the low cost of living here and its central location.

I mostly do custom cabinet work, and when and if I find some free time, take on commission pieces, or just trying to use up all my wood scraps, and believe me I must have some yankee in me, I never throw anything away, just gotta figure out where to store it.

Flatonia . . . wow. My best friend owns some property between Cistern and Muldoon. We used to go there in the 80’s and 90’s to get away from Houston and do some fishing. Flatonia was the nearest “big city” to buy groceries. Beautiful town.
