Location: Mineral Ridge, Ohio

Well, I'm 50 now. I've been a General Contractor most of my life. I've been building cabinetry for about 25 years, Vanities, kitchens, wall units, ect. Everything a contractor might supply or sell as custom options or add-ons. Woodworking has always been a passion. I'm self taught in the furniture area worked in early years with old time cabinet maker to learn that trade. But with all the New cabinet co. out there I have been trying to make Furniture for about 12 years now. I'm from Northeastern Ohio, Between Youngstown and Warren. I can't follow Furniture plans to save my life, So, I just Really wing it on a song and a prayer, and see what happens.

Your handle reminded me of a friend. The sign at his cabin was ”MOMPOPKIDSNPUP”

Added you to my “Buddies” list. Hope you don’t mind. Saw your post about maybe starting a NE OH LJ club.

Strong possibility we may be moving to Ashtabula this summer. Would like to have a contact to find out all the local wood haunts.
