Since I'm relatively new to Instagram and gained a bunch of new followers recently, I want to tell a little about myself and encourage you to share a little about yourselves. I live on a 50 acre farm in Ravenna, Ohio located between the Ravenna Arsenal (Army Camp Ravenna) and beautiful West Branch State Park where this photo was taken. I'm a single mom and mother of two. I was married to a real handyman, a maintenance man at Kent State University, who tragically, was killed on his way to work nine years ago on our son's fourth birthday. I became "handy" out of necessity as I suddenly became the caretaker of his family's 1818 (crumbling) farmhouse. Not only did I design and oversee its complete renovation, but those skills led me to earn my handy reputation, prompting a coworker to ask for a thin blue line flag. I have a full time job as a paralegal and grand jury coordinator in Summit County and assemble flags in my "free time."
You don't have to be as long winded (hey, I'm Italian, what did you expect) but please let me know where you're from and what led you down your woodworking path.
