February 2023 – New Team Member – Dave Kerner

John and I are so excited to welcome Dave Kerner to our team of skilled craftsmen here at Jim Farris Cabinets.  Dave and I have been good friends for over 45 years.  We first met at a radio control model sailplane contest back in 1977.  He was a fellow woodworker and we have stayed in contact all of these years.  We have regularly consulted with each other about different projects.  Over the years I have tried several times to get Dave to join us but the timing has never been right before.  This latest time I was 4 months into an arduous search for a new employee when Dave’s most recent job dried up.  I told Dave that he ought to come work with John & I.  We were so pleased when Dave agreed to come on board!  He started the first of August 2022.  Dave already knew John and has been in the shop regularly over the years so we were not starting at ground zero.  Dave has now been here over 6 months and we have settled into a good routine.  John & I have really been enjoying working with Dave.  Dave and his skillset have been a valuable addition to Jim Farris Cabinets.  I’m so looking forward to putting our creative minds together and creating all kinds of beautifully crafted cabinets, furniture and other kinds of woodworking projects.  I am so blessed to have Dave and John working with me here at Jim Farris Cabinets.
