Living in the old Sandhill Church off Old Us 31, Dr. Frank Choate, a retired psychologist, has switched his therapy sessions from the office to the woodshop.
A hobby-turned-career that started 20 years ago, Choate is careful to not get burnt out from his passion.
Chaote says he can make almost anything. All he needs is a photo and estimates are free.
He not only makes furniture and furniture repairs, he also does custom gifts.
The amount of time he takes on each piece varies, as he takes his time personalizing and perfecting until it's complete.
You can find some of Choate's work at several stores around Rochester.
For the most part, everything is made after an order has been placed.
