Since my pile of cut off lumber has slowly started to take over the shop I thought I would build a few boxes with it and practice some techniques that I have wanted to try. It is also a great way to try out some different finishing methods without much expense.

I live in St. George's while my fiancé (boy do I hate that word) goes to SGU. This week, I made a new screen door. What should have been an hour project turned into 6+ hours.

If you are looking for an apprentice or spare hands around your shop, I'd love to learn.

I have more free time than I know what to do with. I have my own transportation and I can pay for what ever I use.

I too was in the military. 8 years in the Army. My email is ryan.d.blough@gmail.com. Please contact me if this is something that interests you. Take care.
