I've been a serious woodworker since about 1999, when I started making things for our home. Since then, I've made quite a bit of the furniture we use in our home. I also enjoy making smaller items as gifts for family and friends.

Along the way, a fellow woodworker suggested I enter some of my work in the Florida State Fair Fine Furniture Exhibition. My first thought was, "No way". In time, he convinced me to give it a shot. I was surprised - and pleased - at the results of my first show because I got First Place in each of the three categories I entered! I've been in two other exhibitions but have not participated since moving to Georgia in 2006.

Now that I'm a little older, I'm looking forward to completing a couple of large projects for our home so I can take it easy on smaller things going forward so this is more of a hobby than a job!
