Giving Back:
​I support local food pantry's 

I have had to move my business away from small jobs. However, over the last few years, I have done 85 small jobs for total donations of:
$8,564 to local food pantries.

Some of my clients have employers who offer matching donations to legitimate charities, and have utilized that benefit to contribute to those pantries.

I am in the best of class, 2015 - 2021 for my positive reviews. Click on the widget to link to my Thumbtack profile. Once you land on the page, you may have to scroll down to find me. Google has invested about $100 mil into Thumbtack. My profile on that website shows 300+ jobs completed, and 200+ good reviews.

You probably found me on Google, but in case you didnt':


​While my website may not be slick, it serves me fine.  You won't see a permission request for cookies. I have had this website since 2013, and I don't have to pass a high maintenance & design cost along to my customers. Under $1,500 for twelve years of website use is not bad.

<> Thumbtack Best of 2015
I am no longer with Taskrabbit. I did about 79 jobs through them. They now take a 30% commission, little too much if you ask me.

Pro-Referral ( formerly Redbeacon) is owned by Home Depot. Basically they send me work in exchange for me purchasing tools and supplies at Home Depot instead of the other big-box hardware stores.

Best of Thumbtack 2016 award

This is a link to my profile on Angie's List. In the spring of 2016, AL opened things up and one can become a member for no charge, and then be able to see the reviews. Below is a screen capture, review summary as of December, 2015.

​​Ready To Assemble (RTA) Furniture and other home products (Storage sheds, swing sets, weight machines, rowing machines, cardio machines, etc) are our specialty.

Due to customer demand, we now offer hanging services; (stuff, not people); Pictures, Mirrors, TV's, Assorted Sculptures, Storage Racks, Bulletin Boards, etc. No charge for small hooks, or adding wire to new frames, or replacing wire on very old frames.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Would a thousand pictures be worth a crashed computer?

In any case, I have consolidated photographs onto my
YouTube channel Playlist.

There are a handful of short videos, most shorter than five minutes.

Proof of insurance, certificate of insurance,
can be provided or arranged as needed.

My agency is;

Next First Insurance Agency, Inc.   

Palo Alto, CA

The coverage is $1,000,000.00

About our clientele:

Given the name of this website, one might assume the clients are; mechanically challenged, two left-thumbed fools
with severe tool allergies.
Far from it.

Our clients include; successful competent people with six and seven figure incomes, U. of C. students in Hyde Park,
Northwestern students in Evanston.

They all know the value of RTA furniture,
and the value of their own time.

Yes, they could assemble the furniture themselves,
and do a good job. 

​But time is valuable, so they pay me, 
because they have more important things to do.
