I have been working with wood since I was in high school back in the mid 80's, and had my hand in all sorts of work from framing to electrical to plumbing and everything in between. When I did wood working and cabinet building for a living it became too much of a job and I started to lose interest and took a break for a few years. I really started up again slowly about 15 years ago when my wife and I were shopping for a wall unit and looking at the pricing I said to her I can build that for less than half, that's all she needed to hear and replied" then do it". Since then I have never purchased another piece of furniture except for a couch that was too good to pass up.
I have been in sales since the early 90's and I am the general sales manager for a cable & wire company called Comprehensive. Whatever free time I have is split between my little girl & my workshop, which she has started to show interest in, which couldn't make me happier. Please feel free to reach out to me one and all,since as a salesman I have the gift of communication, sometimes too much according the Mrs.
