Karl J. Smith – Mountain Home, Idaho -  Phone (208) 587-5268


   Karl Smith, the owner of Custom Woodworking, founded his cabinet shop at its present location in 1977. He says,” When my wife and I moved into this property in 1975, the mobile home was the only building on the property.” The shop, which is mostly built of salvaged materials, has been five different sizes over the years and is currently about 2000 sq. feet.

   I have no formal schooling in woodwork. I first worked in wood manufacturing with a bee keeper out north of Mountain Home named Dave Koch. He was something of a mechanical wizard who built not only his own honey bee equipment, but several of the machines he used to build it with. He was a rather persnickety craftsman who demanded the most precise and quality work. It was an excellent apprenticeship.

   I have, over the years, been involved with just about every type of woodwork imaginable, from antique vehicle restorations to cabinets for Geodesic Domes. The only limitation I adhere to has to do with scale. Some jobs are just too large. I’m a one man shop and my focus is on satisfying my clients one at a time, and expanding my own education and skills. I offer Dovetail & Mortise and Tenon construction techniques and cut and assemble all my work here in my shop. I have often said I feel most fulfilled when a client, while writing the final check on a job, tells me, “I don’t know how you did it, but it’s exactly what I wanted.”

Edward Jones Investments

2390 American Legion Blvd. Suite #4Mountain Home, ID 83647 – Phone 208-587-3972


   Edward Jones was founded in 1922 by Edward D. Jones Sr. Edward Jones is a brokerage and investment advisory headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri which serves investment clients in the United States and Canada, through its branch network of more than 12,000 locations. The firm focuses solely on individual investors and small-business owners. Edward Jones is a limited partnership and is not traded publicly on stock exchanges.

   Edward Jones financial advisors sell commission-based and fee-based financial products. Offices are usually staffed by two associates: one Financial Advisor and one Branch Office Administrator. The one-broker-per-office model allows clients to choose their broker directly and deal with just that broker. This model also allows the firm to open offices in areas and towns where a large office staffed by many brokers would be unprofitable. This model is also the reason that Edward Jones currently has the largest number of branch offices among brokerage firms in the United States.

   Patrick C. Cruser, Financial Advisor, heads up the Edward Jones office located on American Legion Blvd. in Mountain Home. With the help of Shannan Bate, Branch Office Administrator, they look forward to helping you plan your individual or small-business investments.

   “I entered the financial-services industry because I like helping people achieve their long-term financial goals, Patrick said. “Building relationships with my clients and in my community is key.”

  Edward Jones, ranked No. 2 on FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” in 2010.

Gus’s Gas

110 Highway 78 – Grand View, Idaho – Phone 208-834-2487


   Gus’s Gas initially started out as Gus’s Barber Shop and Grand View Laundry Mat in 1969, by Richard “Gus” and Linda Gustavson.  In March, 1978, because of a need for a gas station, a regular and supreme gas pump was installed and the business became known as Gus’s Gas. About six months later they added diesel & propane.

   In 1979 Gus put in a car wash and then expanded the store to include fishing and hunting supplies. When Gus passed away in 1994, Linda closed up the laundry and barber shop.

   Gus’s Gas has an assortment of fishing equipment and supplies to accommodate the trout fisherman to the heavy duty sturgeon fisherman. They also sell fishing licenses and duck stamps. There is also a selection of tools, automotive accessories and a small convenient store.

   Gus’s Gas is a great business and Linda is in hopes of selling it so she can retire. “I have made a lot of friends over the years and appreciate the loyalty of all the people that have made this business such a success,” said Linda. “When I do retire, I will miss them all!”
