    New neighbor, Keith Fritz

    This is my new neighbor. Not really a neighbor but about 20 minutes away. Guess I am going to have to stop in for a visit. He has built some tables for the Clinton's, Bill and Hill. Hearing he has a display desk that sales for 32. That's $32,000. Supposed to be better than perfect.

    Now that guy knows what he is doing. Take note for all of you who want to do this for a business.

    He must have hired a very professional marketing company.


    Note i dont see any mention of price. He does not sell on price. But i bet you he aint starving and commands a very good price for his work.
    cheers

    Get down there and tell him you'll be his sanding-boy. I'd sweep up for free just to have the opportunity to soak up something by osmosis.

    I lived in that part of Indiana for about seven years and know about the generational (German) tradition of fine craftsmanship. This guy and his "cadre of artisans" turn out some fine work. Not a one guy shop for sure. Just the time involved to accompany each piece on delivery must add a couple thou to the price.

    I had my stores in Batesville. There is (was?) a big furniture factory there that makes some real high stuff. The guys who worked there were true craftsman as were many others in town. There also was a business that did only hand carving. They made masters for castings of factory made furniture. Those guys who did the carving were incredibly talented.

    Say that in hushed tones. Yes, still are as far as I know.
    Also big in hospital furniture, practically a nationwide monopoly.
