Overfed white guy. Too many interests, too little time. Married to a great woman, great kids, great life... so far. Got into woodworking long after my father taught me the basics. Now I have a well-equipped and electrified shop in what used to be a two-car garage. Many home improvement projects under my belt; all new interior doors and trim throughout including stacked baseboards, wainscoting, chair rails and crown molding. All stained, no paint. Exterior projects include completely remodeled front porch including window treatments, new front door and architrave, bow front window boxes, a pattern laid ceiling and I even designed and built the light fixture. I also built a new mail box to reflect the details of the porch, blah, blah, blah. Anyway, I love making sawdust and overcoming the FUBARs that are a natural part of the process.
For the house, I'm working on window treatments that include bow front window boxes mounted on french cleats and supported by CI brackets fitted to large wooden L-brackets. There's also decorative jambs and headers AND heavy lattice on either side to support whatever the missus desires. Whew, and that's just on the south side of the house.
I've also planned an entrance arbor for the front and side yards, a 26' pergola for the north side of the house and... you know the saying--you got a house, you got a hobby!
