Thought I would post some of my work on the forum so you all get an idea of the work I do. These are a few inlayed floors I've restored in Cincinnati. Some are new floors that I built using traditional materials and methods.

Old floors:

Wish you could have met Sonny Hil. He knew all the tricks of the trade and was one of the finest plaster men in the area.  I really enjoyed working with him over the years.

Vivian,

I'm sure I would have loved to meet him! I've meet many old timers who have taught me well. I personally have about 25 years of experience in Historic Preservation. I've worked on many National Historic buildings and homes over the years. I'm a consultant for the Army Corps of Engineers when they need some advice on historic buildings along with several Architects and Developers whom I've also done Consulting work for.

I've been around....

I’m glad to know that a young person with your talent is now working in the
Middletown area. I wish you all the best. A good cabinetmaker/finished carpenter is worth his weight in gold.

By the way, I absolutely love what I do! If someone tells you, "no one does that anymore" then just call me...

I have worked on several large jobs where we had to call on the Amish craft men from
Southern Indiana. They would show up at job site in their black clothing and some of the most beautiful hand made tool chest that I have ever seen in my life. They looked like fine furniture. Then you would just sit back and watch them make the magic happen.

This is now becoming a lost art in the building trades.
