Hello my name is Jeff, and I am….. a woodworker.

Wood working is something i grew up watching my dad do in the garage. Nothing on a professional level but he made it work for small projects around the house. I started out hobbying around making the occasional bike ramp or bird house. I lost sight of all of the wood working after joining the military. After i was discharged i went to work in a custom cabinet shop where i remembered how much i love this. In 2008 my PTSD got the best of me and i tried to end it all. i ended up as an amputee because of this stupid decision. I recently got back into woodworking building some custom pieces for the house. Next thing you know, people around the neighborhood started asking if i could build things for them. next thing i know my wife makes me a Facebook page and things have somewhat taken off. since i have a day job the only time i really get to work on the projects is after work and on the weekends.

Well thats my story. I will post some pics at a later time.

Take care!


-- Jeff
