I have been working with wood since I was in high school back in the mid 80's, and had my hand in all sorts of work from framing to electrical to plumbing and everything in between. When I did wood working and cabinet building for a living it became too much of a job and I started to lose interest and took a break for a few years. I really started up again slowly about 15 years ago when my wife and I were shopping for a wall unit and looking at the pricing I said to her I can build that for less than half, that's all she needed to hear and replied" then do it". Since then I have never purchased another piece of furniture except for a couch that was too good to pass up.
I have been in sales since the early 90's and I am the general sales manager for a cable & wire company called Comprehensive. Whatever free time I have is split between my little girl & my workshop, which she has started to show interest in, which couldn't make me happier. Please feel free to reach out to me one and all,since as a salesman I have the gift of communication, sometimes too much according the Mrs.

Thank you all for the warm welcome, I have been visiting LJs for months now and everyone seems to have good advice, much of which I have used. I look forward to sharing some projects with all of you. I am currently building some new kitchen cabinets and almost at the finishing stage. I will snap a few shots so you can see the progress.

Thanks for the kind works and welcome Marty,

The inlay work was as you suspected a test of my patience, I started it and made so many horrid looking links, and bined many templates I almost gave up, it was only when a friends little boy commented on seeing some of the prototypes that it would really look great when I finished it, so I then continued.

Its amazing just how the human brain works when you walk away from something for a while then revisit the problem and get some success, you think to yourself “I wasn’t that hard after all”
