Hi Charles - 


This would be an in-house hire for a candidate living in Southwest Houston, Texas.


Here is a description of the job: 


These are Renovations.  Mostly whole-house renovations moving walls, but also kitchens, baths, and second story additions.   Need a Chief-savvy draftsman to meet on the job-site with one of our Project Salesman/designers and the client, draw an accurate as-built plan at the first meeting,  then help develop 2 possible "after" scenarios, then present the plans and elevations at my Showroom in Houston, on a large TV to the clients.

      I am applying a wood material to kitchen cabinets and the wood grain is going vertical in the doors and horizontal in the drawers.
      I checked the cabinet specifications and it shows only one material for doors.
      How can I do the wood grain the same direction in the doors and drawers?
      Thank you.
