I am a custom furniture builder who grew up playing in the saw dust. My dad started our waterbed furniture business when I was around 6 years old (1980). My first woodworking experience was making swords and guns to play with. I would make mini waterbeds out of scrap and use a zip lock bag for the mattress. I started working with Dad after school and in the summers when I was 15 (1989).

At that time, we were a very small business with maybe one other employee besides my dad and grandfather. I was thrown in, shown a picture, and had to figure out how to build it. This was probably the best thing for me. I learned the most that way. Because I had to learn as I went along, some of my building techniques can be different from other professionals.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration (Like Yours), the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

There are so many people on here, sometimes it takes quite awhile to catch up with the ones that have been here longer than I have. But, welcome to LJ’s Chris. Good to have another professional woodworker on board.
You are making some really beautiful pieces. I can see God’s hand in it. :)
