Now it's forty years later and I'm still at it , but now more than ever. After working in 2 furniture factories, a lumber yard, a pallet company, carpentry work and antiquing, my head is full of ideas. Through the encouragement of my wife and my 2 grown children I am putting these ideas into production.

I hope you like our shop and enjoy these items as much as we do. By the way, my wife and children caught the fever too.
