Location: fredericksburg Texas

My work is shaped by forty years of artistic and creative learning, living and working to re-create the rhythm and beauty in nature she provides for my evolving unique perspective. I canvass nature as my palette to give me the material to fire my inspiration into beautiful sophisticated one of a kind unique creations. Growing up oa a rugged south Texas ranch nurtured my independant spirit to love natural materials forming an intimacey with nature and a unique unkown spirituality. Working in my youth as a cedar chopper , deck builder, house framer and cabinet maker gave me a work ethic for Architecture school. Teaching me the value of decorative arts, special orientation and love of minalmist modern design. Working in the Architectural millwork field for over fifteen years as a Draftsman, shop foreman and project manager, tenured me an education in production techniques and finishing I still value and build upon today. For the last twenty five years I have been running my own studio drawing upon all my live experiances to create one of a kind, graceful , sophisticated limited production studio furniture along with decorative sculpture for timeless treasures as a gift to you.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

I have enjoyed looking through your unique approach to woodworking, texture, and your craft abilities this morning, and I made you a “buddy” so I wouldn’t miss your next postings. I hope that lumberjocks helps you achieve your marketing needs, as you indicate you are trying to find a way to run into production of your designs. You might find that instead you enjoy being a one-of-a-kind studio artisan, which is a whole other process and direction, so which ever path you choose, I hope that it works out for you. Lumberjocks has so positively affected my own craft marketing, that I no longer do art shows, nor pay for advertising, nor worry about my own website. It can also be a good source for help and advice on woodworking related topics, and I hope you enjoy your time on the forum.

Ive noticed your theme of commenting and thought i wood tell you im not looking for what you have to offer so kindly forget that i exist Ive been doing custom! work for 14 years and predominately build to MY CLIENTS TASTE
so you are actually criticizing their taste and frankly Ive already come to terms with using my skills to provide a service so kindly refrain your input for i find it not unlike any other poop Ive encountered
if i present something id like your take on ill ask for it

Michaelangelo’s convictions of his idea’s/designs we celebrate for hundreds of years Frank lloyd Wright never wavered from his designs we awe at today. Design solutions make or break the pieces. I ve been in many furniture shows and not one piece has been critiqued without constructive critisism from judges . If you stand above all others without humility next to michaelangelo and Frank I retract my critique. I know furniture making is a balance of mind and heart. If you are so experienced then critique my designs I ‘d love to hear you views. Good Luck

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself just about 2 years ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…
