Website:

First in a wood shop at the age of 5 to help my Grandpa, although no power tools until I was 10ish. Was avid at working wood until the end of high school (when I lost access to a decent shop, my bedroom didn't work very well). After working as a builder for awhile, and never being satisfied with the level of quality of contractors I worked for, branched out on my own. This allowed me to do the level of quality I desired and if doing it right took a little longer than I thought, oh well, I don't make as much. I've since taken a full-time job giving me the opportunity to practice my skills on a 100 year old 13,000 square foot mansion. Moving to a new house allows me the opportunity to actually set up a decent shop and I don't have to move my tools from job to job anymore! In the process of finishing my shop and looking forward to more time to actually focus on projects.
