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.
-- Cheers and God Bless

Just a heads up to eastern Michigan woodworkers. I was looking around on craigslist today and came across what seems like a pretty good deal. I can’t afford it at the moment but maybe you can. Bundles of lumber for $300. http://detroit...
Between my being a carpenter in today’s Michigan economy (lots of idle time) and my desire to learn more about finishing, I stopped by a local furniture refinishing/restoration shop a couple of weeks ago to see if I could pick up a non-payin...
This is just going to be a quick blog to get you to mark your calenders. I will post the rest of the details and a map in the very near future. I have mentioned in a few PMs that I’ve been thinking about hosting a southeast Michigan LJs B...
When I picked up my new (new to me) table saw, the guy threw in a dado set. I’ve been wanting to build a couple of the modular storage units that I saw in The Complete Small Workshop for a while, but I didn’t want to go through the who...
