Hello, I am Marcus

A little about me:
I am 27 and have been woodworking since 2004. I graduated from New England School for Architectural Woodworking in Easthampton, Mass in 2008. It was a 37 week course in cabinet making.
Since then I worked at a large commercial woodworking shop in Avon, CT as a lister in the engineering department. While there I learned my way around AutoCAD a bit more. I was laid off from there due to downsizing and after doing some side jobs, currently I am a full time cabinetmaker at a 3 man shop in Holyoke, MA.
I am trying to start my own small business so any advice or tips from you guys would be great!

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
