Location: Clarinda Iowa

I grew up as the son of one of the greatest carpenters and cabinet builders ever to not be well know!! Some of his ideas could and has been patented but unfortunately not by my father. He built temporary hospitals behind the first line of attack in WWII and was wounded while in France. He served his country in seven European countries and came back to the USA to become a contractor and cabinet builder in Clarinda, Iowa. Many of his houses as well as his cabinet jobs are still in use as of today.

My father taught me a lot but he never wanted me to become a carpenter as he felt I had more potential elsewhere. His inspiration to me has been the driving force for me to take up woodworking as my retirement hobby.

The photo I have added is of an Albino Squirrel which is so very rare. In 65 years I have only seen this one. And like my father there is only one like him in this world and I am proud to say he was my father!!!!

Morning, dhgrimes50
I would say, “Welcome to the group” but, evidently, you’ve been here a while…. just quite.

I have been away for about three years.

Looking forward to sharing your experiences and adventures.

Later, Gator.
Peace and Blessed be.
