I was born in Dover Ohio and lived in New Philadelphia Ohio until the age of 13 when my father was transferd to upstate South Carolina where I have lived for the past 40 years. I like making just about anything from wood. I do not consider myself an expert and am always interested in learning more.
My Grandfather was a master craftsman, he did the type of work you do not see today. I guess I am inspired by him but can not come close to his skills and talant.
I have some of his work and I just recently aquired some of his tools from my uncle. He actually built his own lathe and I am just giddy to have aquired this unique piece of equipment. It was built in the 30s.
