There will be no photos, as the events of this story happened long before the camera was invented.
Back in the early 80's, my time was spent trimming out houses and building cabinets on site for remodels, along with the other chores that a woodworker would be expected to do, hanging doors, wainscote and block paneling etc. Framing, roofing and fence building all had had their place.I had also done some serious decks and patio shades so up until that time my experiences were quite varied.
I had a box van they called it, in which I carried my tools. I could stand up inside it which was very nice. I carried a 10" rockwell contractor saw on a stand, 3/4" oilless ITT portable compressor, guns, 9" rockwell mitre box, saw horses, short ladder, circular saws, drills etc, just about every thing I needed to do whatever I needed to do.
Well anyhow in trying to make the story short, i can't because it stretches out a bit..
I was called to a house for a remodel. The contractor was a friend who was real good at figuring the way to make the old fit in with the new additions so that the new looked just as old or the old looked just as new. That is VERY important! More later.
