Location: Tampa Florida

Most of my wood working experience has come from the flooring trade. I installed hardwood & vinyl floors in and around the Columbus, Ohio area for 10 yrs. in the 80's and 90's. I then went to work for Honda of America mfg. building cars in Marysville, Ohio for the next 14 yrs. Everything was going pretty good and then something about a wall street bailout or something came along and a couple of years & home foreclosure later I ended up taking a buyout and somehow or another I ended up living in Tampa, Fla. Life is funny, ain't it. I started out up in Columbus, Ohio building adirondacks from used pallets, then once I got pretty good at it I turned to Red Cedar since it was readily available and easy to work with. I live in Tampa Florida now and build adirondacks out of rough cut Cypress from local sawmills. It's fairly cheap lumber to buy since it's only been partially air dried but still makes beautiful outdoor furniture. I've taken the best parts of the Jake Chair and NYWS chair and combined them together and added a few touches of my own and I call it the gulf coast chair.
