My occupation in my last life, was an automotive wood model maker. Of course you're asking, "what is that?" It sounds really old fashioned, like something out of the 1800's. Yes, it seems that way. Technology does that. I am in awe of how fast it changes life for everybody.
I made full-sized wood models for the auto industry. Every single part of a car; fender, doors, windshields, taillights, etc., and every single inner panel, needed a perfect full-sized model from which dies could be made to mass produce parts. These models, made from a special laminated mahogany, conformed to exacting standards of 15/1000 of an inch! We model makers used band saws, table saws, routers, chisels, files and sandpaper. The craft reached final extinction sometime around 1990, due to computerized machining. No surprise. We knew it was coming.
I spent the next decade still working with my hands, building custom furniture, then various facets of residential construction. After incorporating in 2001, my son and I teamed up, hired a crew and installed roofs. We also built additions, garages, siding and gutters. My focus now is exclusively roofs, and gutters if we install the roof.
I love architecture, design and practically everything that makes a home. My knowledge of all facets of home building is broad, practical and is derived from hands-on experience. Along the way there has been challenging work which I do not shy away from. I've also been engaged in various original, creative projects from which I've derived great pleasure. From my earliest work experience as a model maker, meticulousness and detail is in my DNA. I can only do good work. I take pride and pleasure in doing good work. It's easy, really. It's old fashioned.
