You remind me of my buddy, John (he was like a brother) who was helping me on my 15 year house project here. He could do everything well. He fell off a ladder 2 years ago on another job (2 weeks before his 50th birthday) on a hot summer day, hit his head on an outdoor A/C unit and died on the spot. Very sad day it was.
Since then I have had to do everything myself with the help of my mexican helper buddy that I have trained from a superb painter to a carpenter and trim man. It takes us 3 times as long and the quality is not 100% of what John did, but we try.
As I have gotten older, my hands are not as good as they used to be ... but I have to finish this job in the next 12 months to move on when my wife retires.
Its a shame you don't live closer as I have a lot of super quality tools (all types) that I need to dispose of when I am finished here.
You do excellent work (craftsman quality) my friend ...
