I've enjoyed woodworking and fine craft for a number of years. My interest began after attending the American Craft Expo in Evanston, Illinois about 20 years ago. I've since taken a few woodworking classes and more recently used the woodshop facilities through the Chicago Park District.

I just started selling my work during Fall, 2015. I participated in the October Randolph Street Market. I'm currently applying for shows for 2016.

I have a shop in a large garage in Evanston. It's just barely heated and insulated, so winter work is difficult, but I'm hoping to do this year-round. I'll post some photos soon.

Hello and thanks everyone for the welcomes. I’m fairly new to woodworking. I’ve taken a few classes and most recently was using a Chicago Park District woodshop. I’m hoping to set up my own shop this summer. If anyone in the Chicago-area has any tools they’d like to get rid of, please let me know!
