I work with my cousin making hardwood flooring and parts for cabinet makers in our area. Living in the heart of Amish country there is over 60 cabinet shops in this county alone. By nature I am a handy man. I can attempt to do carpentry, electrical, and plumbing. Dumb laborer is my trade and stock. I enjoy the patients it takes to create a beautiful piece of woodwork. Everything I have learned about wood has been through the school of hard knocks. From every mistake I learn at least how NOT to do something. The only thing I do know for sure is GOOD tools do not cost that much in the long run, its the cheap tools that cost you much more.
-- God bless the men and women who protect our counrty.
