One of my favorite hobbies beside horseback riding is restoring old, broken, or otherwise unusable furniture into something that can be used again. Also to give it back its former beauty or new beauty that I as the designer and builder get to decide. It requires carpentry skills that I learned from my father and still get help form him sometimes it also requires time and imagination, you have to be able to look at a piece of old broken junk and see it becoming a piece of art.

Furniture Restoration is a unique hobby and one that I know I will enjoy for the rest of my life. It allows me to create and use my artistic eye to see potential where no one else can. I love fixing things and having people see my finished works and saying "Wow! How did you do that?".
