When and how did you get into using tools/doing projects?
I got my car stuff from my Dad, who used to be a mechanic. I got my woodworking stuff from Sears, where I sold power tools for three years. I learned to respect tools like firearms.
What do you do when you're not tinkering in the garage and working on other projects?
I spend time in the Deaf Community, as an interpreter and a leader at my church. Also I enjoy traveling with my family.
What's the project you're most proud of?
My downstairs half bath. I spent the last week of 2011 putting in a new floor, toilet, sink, counter, faucet and paint. Using Craftsman tools of course!
Any stories of DIY disaster?
No real disasters, but I am a frequent member of the "measure once, cut twice" club...
Why do you use Craftsman tools?
They are affordable, and I don't have to wait for them to use them. I can get them almost anywhere locally. The hand tool warranty is great too!
How did you get your DIY skills?
From my Dad, Grandfather, and lots o' trial and error!
Anything you have to say to other craftsmen out there?
Measure twice. Cut once!
