Like the old saying goes "it's not the destination... it’s the journey" However, I also feel that each destination reached is great because it means a new journey is now beginning...and this new journey will be even exciting and fun because of things I’ve learned and experienced during my last journey.
We all must start somewhere in our journey of doing what we love to do. My woodworking journey started when I was around 12 years old. I watched and hopefully helped my Dad, Uncle and Grand Papa build pirogues in the garage and became fascinated with tools and woodworking. I will never forget that feeling of the first time we paddled out into the marsh with that pirogue we built and how it just floated over the water..Oh yeah... My fascination has never stopped.
I strive to achieve a good balance between my individual artistic creativeness, flow, technique, design, originality and producing something that causes someone to realize that they just have to own it.
-- Each step of every Wood Art project I design and build is considered my masterpiece… because I want the finished product to reflect the quality and creativeness of my work

I am almost finished this table. The Zebrawood top is 73”x 39” and the rails are Padauk with Zebrawood Legs. I did not want the legs to be in contact with the floor so for protection I added some of those super glide disks to the botto...
