    My shop

    Thought this would make a good introduction.

    I'm 28. Been a cabinetmaker for the past eleven years. Started on my own in 2004, and have been struggling through a very poor housing market since.

    Half the time I don't remember to take pictures, or bring a camera to a job site.

    Here some of my favorites though









    Just made the treads here. The stair case was all steel otherwise











    This is just box I whipped up with some scraps laying around the shop. I messed up 6 drawers, and they had been sitting around the shop for the better part of a year.











    Fluted column for the some of the metal post's in a basement. "Great Stuff" expanding foam works awesome for getting these to stay in place when you have nothing to attach them to.

    My shop

    I don't know, but I think you guys might agree. With a little more practice, and some experience, this young whipper-snapper might could become a good cabinet maker, don't you think, Larry?

    Seriously Karl, You do some impressive work. Looks like we have another Tod here with us.

    Welcome to the family.

    Aloha, Tony
