Milwaukee carpenter builds custom cabinets
Rapper MC Hammer, born Stanley Kirk Burrell, rose to fame in the early 1990s with such chart-topping hits as "U Can't Touch This" and "Too Legit To Quit."
Before he became famous, he sold records out of the trunk of his car, and more recently he co-founded dancejam.com, a website where people can view, learn or show off their favorite dance moves online.

Description of work "Marc [Callies, the owner] built a custom bench and shelf for my front entry hall. He also built shelves for my hall closets. In addition, he built a laundry cart and folding area for my new laundry room. It has a laminate top and holds two laundry baskets. He installed a bar on wheels that can be moved throughout the room so I can hang clothes that need to drip-dry."
Member comments "The bench and shelf are beautiful. I showed him a picture of what I wanted and he built it to fit the entry hall. It's one of the nicest pieces of furniture in the house. My closet shelves are also custom-built and far superior to anything I could purchase in a store. I love my laundry cart. The wood matches my cabinets and it's a practical piece of furniture."
