I'm a long time woodworker, having travelled the span of Cabinetry, Architectural Woodworking (Entry Doors, Mantles, Window, Curved linear Stair components, Hand Rails. I've been selfemployed most of my woodworking career... something about not being able to find a job in my area that fulfilled my love for the craft.
I've followed the normal pursuits learning my skills, and am now at a point in my life where I've almost done it all and seen it all. Thankfully, I still get projects that challenge my skills, and fortunately so far, I've been able to step up to the plate and give my clients more that they expected when they get their treasured heirlooms back.

I currently operate a furniture repair shop that I call "The Furniture Restoration Studio" located in New Braunfels, Texas (centerally located deep in the heart of Texas.) I pride my shop as being a "Conservatory for fine furniture". I am finding that more and more of my clients are new money people who are buying vintage/antique pieces that require extensive work to correct problems such as structural integrity, missing component parts, and mostly poor finished resulting from years of abuse.
I operate a 4000 sqft shop set up to provide solutions to any and all problems that can happen to a piece of furniture. My shop came about after I attempted to work for a national furniture retailer, who while professing a unique buying process and passing the savings on to the consummer, was actually buying shopworn, damaged, overstock products and selling them discounted with slight damage/wear. My job was to make silk purses out of sows ears. I concluded, that working for myself was better than having to make excuses for my employers falsehoods.
I've reviewed the postings of members, and enjoyed the frank to the point evaluations, and solutions offered by the members. I hope to be able to spend some time with those of you who share my outlook on the craft, and hopefully will learn of new and better ways to solve problems i've incountered throughout my time as a woodcrafter.
