Hello from Detroit


Hello, My name is Tom and I have been a woodworker all my adult life (about 35 years). I have bought tools for personal use since I was 18. I started out hanging doors in the Detroit area. Worked for a custom door shop for 6 years buildind door pockets and bastard size flush, solid and hollow, and stave core doors. I then moved on to being a sawman in a cabinet shop for 13 years. When I'd get the weeks parts cut, I helped in whatever department needed a hand at the time, learning all of the tasks from beginning to end. I then got into commercial construction. Did that for about 4 years. Lots of metal stud walls, and doors, trim, and casework. For about the last 12 years I have moved from one place to another doing high end trim and cabinets with my own tools (mostly residential). All still here in Detroit, and it's suburbs. If I had to pick what I did most, it would be doors. I have always had a knack for getting them in right. I have had the opportunity to work on homes that I would never had known what the inside looked like had I not chosen this trade (or did it choose me?).
