That is awesome. My husband too, is quite handy, and we have many pieces in our house that he has handcrafted. Not perfect, but totally amazing and mean the world to me. Currently he is putting in a tongue and groove flooring upstairs that we purchased with the house. Thin strips of hard grain maple, just gorgeous.
We have stopped many times and picked up something that someone else is getting rid of, refinished it, and installed it in our home. And those are the pieces everyone asks about where we got them from, LOL.
Good to read this. :)
