Location: Novi, MI.
Website:

I am a 35 year old carpenter. I specialize in decks and arbors and finish trim. I do a little woodworking on the side. I really enjoy making personalized boxes, wood carving, frames and pretty much anything along those lines.
My shop has pretty much been taken apart and stowed away for a few months. My fiance and I have been trying to buy a house for the past seven months and a nice garage is a must. We have an offer in that has been accepted by the home owner and we are just waiting to hear back from the bank. As soon as we sign, I'll have my shop back.
I am not a "dark" person, obsessed with death or anything like that, but I like to make casket shaped items. In general, I just LOVE the craft and everything about it..... Except for all of the sanding and the costs of everything.

Kristoffer H.

-- Cheers and God Bless

Thank you all for your LJ’s hospitality!!!!!!!!! I can already see how addictive this site can be, but hey, it beats crack or some other messed up junk. I’ll throw up some pics of my work as soon as I figure out how to get them under 3 mb’s. I’m pretty slow when it comes to computers…. I still can’t figure out how to change the blade on mine. Slainte!
