Welcome to LJ, Gizmo. Lucky you living that close to the Gamble house and having a bungalow of your own. I’m envious. I’m be interested to see how your remodel goes.

Welcome to LumberJocks

It’s nice to have another LumberJock from Pasadena.

I have been making cabinets. We should discuss cabinet making. BTW, where are you taking the cabinetmaking classes? Cerritos? I haven’t been able to find anything close to Pasadena.
