Thanks for the video, (I think?). Great advise with some entertainment (I think?). Very creative, (Maybe?). Tell Safety Dan to stay alert for all things unsafe.

Really, very good job, (I think?).
P.S.: I agree with Jim “Fun and Crazy,” (I think?)

Informative, useful, and funny as sh…aving cream.

As I was watching, I was already writing my follow-up question as to how one would market their custom cabinetry skills, but you were way ahead of me.

Dancing in the street, on railroad tracks, and on atop one’s workbench are unsafe and set bad examples for younger children.

Amusing. I think I heard they had some unidentified gas leaks in the Toledo, OH area and found some tainted coffee grounds that were not really made from coffee beans. Something about funny shaped mushrooms . . .

I just did the same thing for a kitchen that was missing a silverware drawer and a drawer front as well as some trim around a new built in oven. I matched up some reclaimed 3/4 inch white oak flooring and used an oil and poly blend finish to match the existing, as well as the existing profiles. The buyer and wife was thrilled and has been giving my name out a lot. Plus I made a few bucks in the process.

Nice to see some fresh talent and some good ideas. Nicely done! Entertaining and informative – a great mix.

When I was working at Home Depot, I thought there might be some extra money in building custom crates. Several repeat customers came to buy and rip plywood and wood to size to make crates for their business but it seemed to me that their time would have been better spent making the things they were shipping and to find a honest and trustworthy partner to build all of the shipping containers for their goods.
