    The images are from a 22k sq ft home we framed a couple years ago. Many arches, large beams and hand framing involved besides the installation of engineered products. Most massive and complex framing job I was ever on. 20160921_161316.jpg

    Working as a carpenter comes in handy for my own projects. Built a secondary garage, all remodeling on my home. Electrical, painting, trim, windows, roof,etc...
    Have a knack for mechanical repairs. Do most of my own vehicle maintenance, rebuild of snowmobiles, boat maintenance. Small engine repair.
    Rarely is a machine of mine in any shop. I take better care of my machines than myself.

    My hands are rough and calloused.

    A friend just helped me with a few hundred rounds for my Rugar American Liberty 41mag. Hard to find caliber.
    Made several differing loads from target loads to man killer.
