I live in the Pacific Northwest. I'm a hard working proud father of three kiddos. My story has changed since I first joined up here. I have been fying for the US Forest Service during the fire season and working as a carpenter in the off season. I'm now focusing more on my carpentry business.
I own a small shop and perform remodels out of my box van. I also own and operate a small horizontal band sawmill, which I really enjoy using. I haven't gotten enough milling in yet, I have a long wishlist of lumber I want to cut. Being in building, I get the opportunity to log a property now and then which supplies me with logs, If I only had more time to mill. I have a bench set aside in my shop that is my hand tools only bench. I am steadily adding to my restored and new hand tools. I also get great satisfaction out of working with hand tools, although I have to admit I don't have time to plane boards square and flat, kiddos remember, so I mill my parts with machines then perform the joinery with the hand tools.
I also like to fish, hunt birds, ride horses, and archery. I am aspiring to get into blacksmithing hopefully soon.
Feel free to drop me a message anytime.
