Retired on 12/21/12 from the chaotic computer industry. However, I was raised in a farming community in the Midwest and have built two horse ranches from green fields, one in North Central Florida and one in Lake County, California. I have not done much in the way of finish carpentry but I would like to try my hand. My most recent creation is a simple planter box that I have on my back deck for a lemon tree. My fiance has several antique pieces that are in need of some TLC and I am sure I can use some advice.
