back in the late 70s i leased an 11000. sq. ft . building , half of which i used for my autobody and restoration shop . at some point i subleased part of it to a furniture and cab. maker . we hit it off pretty well and he ended up teaching me woodworking and i was teaching him to work on his car . here are some of my very first projects .
a little birdseye maple stand with teak insert panels , i gave it to my daughter and she still has it .

a curleymaple and walnut wall shelf w/ a drawer . i either sold it or gave it away . i dont remember which

an oak stereo cab, with two speaker stands . my first hand carvings on the stands . i sold the set to a friend in the late 80s when i moved to atlanta

at thats a little tidbit of history , the good ole days !

those are nice projects, Trim. Looks like you learned well. I started out as a mechanic too. Woodworking was just a hobby until I retired. Nice job on the Camaro.

A ‘68 drop top? WOW! Bet you wish that one was still around. BTW, when did you live in Atlanta? I lived there during the ‘80s. Sweet time it was. Great beginnings.

You started off with some pretty nice pieces.And I love that car.A friend of mine had one in blue when we were younger.We used to put the top down and just cruise around all day.And it only cost us a buck for gas.(lol)
