Ships Ladder – Great for Small Spaces

I have worked side by side with my father and his business Artisan Builders for the last 17 years and counting and have had the privilege to build and trim some of the finest houses in our area of Texas. Here are a few of the homes I trimmed while working with Artisan Builders.” – Tohner Jackson

Finely Crafted Caravan

I can’t even imagine the number of hours that have gone (and will still go) into this finely crafted caravan. Amazingly high level of quality here.

“As you can probably guess I have been very busy. I don’t have much time still and will do some much more detailed writing on the caravan project at a later date, however for now here are some photos of the trailer in its current state taken by the talented Thomas Lay.”

See all the photos and whats he building in there?: Update!
