It’s been a crazy beginning of the week, hump day is tomorrow, and before you know it Friday will be here! I had a wonderful time with my dad installing an entertainment center slash desk area slash storage unit. It turned out so beautiful. This is before……..
I had looked at the plans and assumed that the cabinets were going into an office or spare bedroom. That is why you don’t assume, it makes an a** out of you and me! Ha just kidding, anyway the cabinets were going into a master suite, and what a great idea. A big space for the TV and room to put your files and computer. Bookshelves for display and lots of drawers for clothing and things. I was really happy with how this turned out and I really liked being there for the end result. I have never really been at a job after its been installed and I got the wonderful feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction knowing that our work was done well.
I appreciate all of the clients that invite me into their home and let me be a part of something added to their lives. I hope in turn they can enjoy their cabinets for years and years to come. All of the opportunity given to me in my life is a blessing.
Tomorrow I will be documenting the cabinets I had delivered today from Merillat Corp a prefab cabinet company we do work for. Its an interesting job and a lot of patience to check each cabinet and make sure everything is in the van for delivery by Thursday. See you then!

I am calling around today trying to find out if certain online companies would want to sell my butcher blocks. It seems far fetched really, I am going against Boo’s Blocks the biggest company of butcher blocks in the United States, probably the world. But I figure, you started small before you got big right?
It is certainly uncertain times right now, and my emotions are on edge and are high. Lucky for my husband! Just kidding…..Anyway, I am trying my best to find the craft shows and street fairs that I can get myself in so that I can get our name out there. Anything in order to build more awareness is the key to people knowing who you are. I hope in 5 years I will look back on these years as a very hard time to go through but something that has made me even stronger. Stronger in my relationship with Jesus, stronger in my ability to face criticism, and a sense of laughter over the insane things that are occurring economically to our company! I know God has a lot in store for us, and its all in his time so I will just keep moving along humbly.
By the way, I am going on a job tomorrow to install beautiful custom cabinetry in a home office. The office cabinets include two desks, a place for a TV, and bookshelves. I am so excited! And when I keep mentioning how excited I am about installing with my dad, he just gives me a look like I am getting on his nerves! Hilarious.
Stay in touch all of the seven people that follow me, (thank you so much) and I will post on Saturday’s Install with pictures.

I have been in the office all week so far and I am getting antsy, wanting to get out. My Dad has been out on a job and will be for the rest of the week and part of next week. You can see his progress on that job soon at http://www.askthecabinetmaker.com in video. I have another trick up my sleeve and here it goes. I want to ask if I can begin doing one project a week in the shop. Such as small a job as putting glass in doors or sanding cabinets. I will document everything and update you as I go. So when Dad gets back into the office next week we will be talking about projects for me to do so that I can learn slowly but surely how to build cabinets. If I sneak in little bits at a time, I think that will be the most effective way to get my butt in the shop! Thanks for listening……..

So here I am in my office today blah, blah, blah………. When I first started doing the accounts for Weber’s Cabinets it was new and exciting, but that was in 2003 and now its not new and exciting anymore. It’s almost like when you fall in love for the first time and everything is so wonderful and exciting, only to find out that he farts all the time and thinks burping is a sport.
I am a learner at heart and I always want to learn something new, and I have gotten to the point with my work now where I have learned all that I want to know about accounting. And I am not so good at it so I need to move on. Hence my idea to work in the shop! Well folks its been an exciting week for me and next week I will have to bring in the big guns and see what I can do in the shop!
