I do all kinds of stuff. be a master carpenter for a long time. started working with my dad doing home improvements when I was 16.
I was working in a brownstone in Brooklyn, had to fix a spackle job a new, (know it all)rookie did bad and slipped and fell 3 floors. Messed my back horrible, many screws and plates later I am up and around somewhat. trying to get my shop and tools in order again. 14 pounds has been my official limit to lift for a few years. learned to get through the pain with no drugs, well Advil,,, nothing stronger, don't help. I get help when I need it. hard to make a living these days.
Got pretty deep into building computers, know quite a bit about that. have a computer room/ studio/ I may do a few videos and see how that goes.. I must do something. bills keep coming.
I worked in Cabinet shops, kitchen and bath places, myself.
