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”

Wow! I just checked out your projects and you have some real impressive work, first class. I also am self taught but don’t go as far as you have. My hat’s of to you, well done.

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.
