i'll post more later, alittle about me, i'm 20, live with parents, go to college full time, work another job, plus all types of side jobs, i'm great at fixing anything and can build pretty much anything. i don't know wether to continue to grow my landscaping business or to do something else i love fabrication and welding, and i also love woods (like metal more). most of the tools pictured are mine some are my dads (thats almost none of them) i probaly have twice as much money invested in tools rather than landscape equipment. for me landscaping is partly owning the equipment, thats what i love, anything with a motor. another part is seeing a freshly cut lawn that looks beautiful. thats alittle about me.

great looking wood work. I do a little my self just not as big of projects. My advice it to grow your Lawn and lanscape biz and do the wood work in the slow months. I have been in the metal fab and machine buisness a long time and I make more money from my lawn service than the Metal buisness. I have trouble getting big buisensses to pay for work I have done in the metal buisness. They just drag out the payment as long as they can. Great looking work.
