This free opportunity is being offered as a way of saying thank you to the community for supporting our business in good times. We are providing this service to help individual's better manage their stress level given the difficult economy. We are hopeful that these individuals will find woodworking to be a fun and relaxing hobby and a positive way to make extra money on the side.

I was looking out my back window, when I saw this deer. First it smelled one of our plants, then it walked up to the hummingbird feeder and smelled the flowers on it.
