From building homes to building decortive mailboxes
Retiring was not easy for me, as I suppose its not for anyone. There was always a reason to get up early and start the day. After retiring, the days seem longer and there was only so much work around the house that needed to be fixed.
My grandsons had seen a old yard truck they were able to play outside and inside on it.. So of course grandpa got busy and made them one. Birdhouses, bird feeders, banks, and a tractor mailbox was next on there list.
Other relatives and neighbors, started asking for me to make them some of the items. Since my wife had a shop here on Etsy, she suggested I open a shop. And that's how Gary the Carpenter shop started. At first I used plans that I purchased and then I started making my own plans. Also some customers have asked for items of there design.

A retired bulder and carpenter, who doesn't like sitting around. Working with wood, is relaxing and enjoyable.
