Hi, my name is Geoff. I wasn't like most other boys growing up. While they were all playing with Tonka trucks and play tools, I was reading and messing around with computers (and this was back before they were big). However, when I was getting married decades later, I discovered it's joy. My wife really wanted an outdoor reception, complete with a chuppa, or a traditional Jewish canopy--even though she's not Jewish. We couldn't find one anywhere, and she just gave up on her dream. But I wasn't about to let that happen! I did some research and teamed up with a carpenter friend to build one for her! Boy, was she surprised. I have to tell you: I was too! I enjoyed the construction process a lot more than I thought I would. I've been hooked ever since!
