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.

I am working on the front cap of the train bed. I made a template for the arch and circle. This is something that I should have done about 3 trains ago. I keep having to reinvent the shapes. After I had the templates made, I then used the tem...
ALL ABOARD! Starting to build one of my train bed. This is what it will look like when I am finished. It will, of course, have a few customized changes requested by the customer, but overall will follow this pattern. I will blog about the ...
I got it built and ready for the finish. The customer requested that we do a two tone color. They really want it exactly like the saw on our web site (see example). I tweaked the colors a little bit but for the most part it is standard Minwax c...
