I like puppies and long walks on the beach
Okay, I like puppies, but the beach I can take or leave. I've been in and out of the cabinet and furniture business pretty much my entire 40 years. I've recently stopped taking cabinet orders from homeowners and have focused on making one-off furniture and building a couple of small lines for a couple of designers. We also offer furniture repair and some refinish work. I grew up in my family's shop where everything from site-built cabinets to gunstocks to fine furniture was made. I also offer stone work through my shop, my former lead guy is also a stonemason, but that stuff's too dadgum much work for me anymore. Hopefully in a year or two I plan to add on a 5000sf shop behind what I have now, about 2100sf, and add a Thermwood router and resume doing general cabinetry. That router would solve my biggest problem with residential cabinetry, finding good help.
Recently I've begun playing with gunstocks and think that's going to be a fun hobby that might be a sideline. My favorite woods are Afromasia, English brown oak, Khaya, sapele, curly cherry, Euro beech and maple.
