When I was younger i had gone through a spell of thought-filled months and that might sound weird but I was thinking a lot and a way I found to cope with it was becoming a person who sees the world in all colors. I needed to find purpose and this was the first way i found to give meaning to my life. I grew up in a one-hundred year old Queen-Ann Victorian home which had lots of places in it that needed work and my father being a veterinarian he didn't feel the same ambition for house held renovations as it did. My name is Jonathan and like to do things. This is the first entry for my blog for school, and because i am proactive about my hobbies and the assortment of things i like to do, not everything I exhibit on this site will be all made of wood necessarily, but for people looking to hire me on professional building and carpentry level they have a well rounded idea of my skill set and can therefore decide if i am qualified for the job.. As for school it is required that i have a blog site where my work can be exhibited, so here it is, this work is from the summer of 2010 and i will have several projects from that year and then current ones. Stay tuned, i am always busy.
Enthusiasm for the industrial arts came about ever since I could play Legos as a very young child and once I reached an age where the design of homes was itching at my curiosity, it was all over from then on. I have been fortunate to work for a few carpenters alike who have shown me many tricks to the trade of construction. After working under so many contractors, it was decided that I was going into business for myself, J.S. Industrial Arts Co; while also going to school at Central Maine Community College for the latest education and practices in Building and Construction Technology. My courses and school resources give me an advantage in the field I feel separates me from other builders in a positive way. If I have questions, they get answered and not from just another builder but a competent and experienced educator who's job it is to teach up to date information as well as stay tuned to the latest and best building practices.
