Hello from Lawnguyland NY

Hi all.
My name is Steve but everybody calls me Sledneck(its a snowmobiling nickname) I grew up in the woodworking business. I started working in my fathers shop at 10 sweeping sanding etc. He had a very large shop that did mostly commercial interiors in NYC.Due do some rough years around the recession in the early 90's he closed. I opened my own shop at that time and he joined me I did commercial interiors as well high end residential apartments in NYC mostly. For 13 years i had a very successful business but just grew tired of chasing money so about 2 years ago i closed. Spent the next 2 years running large millwork installations. For last 3 months I have been working as an estimator for a very large shop.Now i spend my days looking at blueprints. Due to an injury and the fact that people just dont pay enough for good hands i no longer do the physcial labor.Not crazy about sitting in an office butt is nice being around the shop. I miss it. Hoping I can share some knowledge as well learn.

Welcome to the site Sledneck!
Man, that stinks. If I couldn't get into my shop and create something I think I would probably go insane.

Did you say tool sale?
