Journey to Furniture-Making
My journey into woodcraft has been an involving one. After 35 years in the corporate world, I wanted to take a different path - one where I could design and create things with my hands. At first, building Kayaks and Canoes were my passion. I studied the boat building at the Wooden Boat School under Greg Rossel. The designs of Nick Shade were very appealing to me, and I used these as starting points for my canoes and kayaks.
Bringing Out the Beauty of Wood
One of my design features is for those smaller or tight areas with practical, functional furniture that appeals to the eye. I use reclaimed wood — bringing out its hidden beauty. But also build custom work from hardwood such as Black Walnut, Cherry, Mahogany, Hard Maple, etc.
