Where to start….I just wanted to post a little info about myself….Been here about three months and haven’t posted any projects or any real info about myself at all. I’m sure there’s been a few instances where people are saying to themselves…who is this clown? LOL!!
I’m not real big on talking about myself…or showing off my work, but thought I should post a little something to show I’m really not a clown! ;o)
Lets see….Been a woodworker for…lemme see…1..2..5..6..10…well, since I was 18, so 24 years! Wow…that made me feel old. I started out installing kitchen cabinets for a couple of years, that got old real fast! I saw an add in the newspaper for a stairbuilder, they said they would train…Thought it sounded pretty interesting, so I applied and got on. WOW!! Interesting, and challenging to say the LEAST!! Worked there for 2 years…but, poor management dictated they went broke. Had some connections from working there, so it wasn’t difficult to find another job building custom stairs…got on with a guy who had just started a custom stair building company a year earlier…..Today (20 years later)...I’m one of the shop foreman (working foreman)for the same company!! Lots of ups…downs…in and outs, but we’ve gone from 4 employee’s total when I started, to almost 30 including office staff.
The majority of the work we do is any type of stairs and railing ranging from basic construction grade straights….to ‘sky’s the limit’ customs. Spirals, circs, elliptical…you name it. We also do pretty much any type of custom mill work.
To this day….I LOVE MY JOB!! Everyday is a new challenge…interesting…demanding and NEVER DULL!! I personally specialize in custom hardwood stairs and railing. I also build lots of furniture in between time…LOL! BLAH BLAH BLAH….ok…talkin’ too much about myself!!
I’ll show you some pictures of my ‘Crowning achievement’ to date. It’s a set of Fluent circular stairs in our showroom…that have every detail and custom option you can think of! LOL!!
Get on with it Tony!
here ya go!
