You sell any of this Simpleman @Simpleman
Would you make a custom job?
I have never done one so probably depends on the project and time frame. Honestly I just tinker with things that amuse me or want to see if I can do. What is your idea? Sorry for late response I dont log in for weeks at a time sometimes. Got a few projects right now. Table can only be touched every 24 hours. Acrylic is being done 12-36 oz at a time. Painfully slow. Planer sometime this week.

Lars Soros @Lars Soros I have always wanted to take some classes at Woodcraft or Rockler but their hours never work for me and something always comes up. Do you work at as builder or craftsman?

I’m an executive for a fairly large developer now but i am a carpenter and a joiner by trade. In my 20s I built high end custom houses, from the footing up. Everything except electrical, HVAC, plumbing, drywall taping and paint. Sold the company and went corporate, miss it everyday.

Very jealous of the knowledge you have undoubtably collected. I am going to try and do a total gut job on our master bath this winter. I will most likely have a pro install the pan for the shower (6’ x 6’), put in the cubby for the shampoos and move the controls. Last owner was a “plumber” and jacked some stuff up beyond comprehension (used caulk instead of grout on shower seat wall).

If you see anything that i post that can be done better or easier please feel free to point it out. No one improves doing the same thing the same way everytime.

i worked for the family business for about 6 years installing flooring (mostly tile and hardwood), so you and I have pretty much the exact same skillz and knowledge 😉

It was actually kind of fun though when working with the custom home builders. They usually did something quality and interesting, and it was a good feeling to see the finished product. Changing out cheap carpet in some shithole house wasn’t very exciting.

Thanks for selling us that company, it was life changing.
