I'm a builder, remodeler, electrician, landlord, and woodworker in the Chicago area. I started building, remodeling, and maintaining houses & buildings in the mid 1970s, still doing it today.
My Grandfather got me started in woodworking and electric in his tiny basement workshop in Ohio. I can still remember the exact details of the first time my Grandfather let me cross cut wood on his table saw. I couldn't have been much older that 9, and I was scared to death. Still remember the sights, sounds and smells of that shop. I have been fortunate to have had some very special patient teachers over the years.
Work and a great family, (wife, 2 kids, a dog, and a big yard to play) keep me very busy.
The talent on this website amazes me every day, it is an awesome place to learn and contribute to.
