Location: Southern California

We own a wholesale nursery in San Diego county, where we grow indoor plants. I use to be an architectural draftsman and after that cabinet maker/general contractor. It has been about 18 years since I owned my own shop, but building our new house gave me an excuse to set up shop again. Most of the woodworking for the house I did myself was cabinets and basic furniture and shelving.

Now the house is completed, we are getting more in a mode of maintenance, fixing and repair. I see my shop (the garage) slipping full with to-do projects and being used as storage for items that could not find a home else where in the house.

I am having a little more time lately for some fun projects like hand tool restoration and hand tool making. Also I am getting into making small boxes etc.

Born in 1957, father of 14 kids, I was born and raised in Holland.
