Location: Katy, Texas

I'm a part time carpenter and handyman during the summers and evenings, as I am still in school.
I'll be moving to Rapid City, South Dakota in August of 2012 to attend the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology to pursue a degree in engineering.
My woodworking varies. Most of my paid work consists of small cabinetry jobs, and outdoor carpentry like decks and fences. However, I'm comfortable expanding into other areas as long as it's what the customer needs.
My personal woodwork is mostly done on machines currently. I really enjoy making cigar ashtrays of all shapes and sizes. I also really enjoy experimenting and trying new techniques and tools.
This summer (2012) I plan to save and slowly outfit myself with a full set of hand tools so I can venture into the unknown that is dovetails, mortise and tenon, hand sawn and hand planed woodwork. I really want to make some furniture this summer as well.
