|How are is does your work differ from other woodworkers?|
I am old, crotchety, mean nasty and ill tempered!~ I am self taught and
have every scar and screwed up project to prove it! I have no
'edumacated' sense what is 'proper' but know what makes sense to me
[till I learn by error] I get true joy and pleasure from my work [hah like that makes me sumptin spezial]
How did you get your start in woodworking?
one else would hire me to do anything. Wood butchery was my sole outlet
with the $$$$ I had available. Started selling at local school craft
shows and learned about the 'Peter Principle'
Why did you choose to build humidors?
local schmuck [who just bought a wood business] had some exotic woods
he offered to supply if I made humidors that he would sell and we would
split 50/50 on sales.
Cigar people will spend big $$$ sometimes

Building, designing, wood finding?
Spending the money I get paid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
