I have been fascinated with woodworking since I found a hand plane and a chunk of wood outside my house in Portland in the '70s. I still have both. After graduating from Reed College in Portland with a BA in English Lit, woodworking captured my heart and imagination. I started building in 1974.

Over the years I've built a few pieces and written some articles about tools and techniques for a few magazines. I have a couple of books published by Taunton Press. I wrote The Complete Illustrated Guide to Joinery which is in its 15th or 16th printing. It is still in circulation after 14 years and is a help to woodworkers, so I am told.

Currently I teach woodworkers of all abilities at my school, The Northwest Woodworking Studio, A School for Woodworkers, in Portland, OR. We teach folks how to make furniture with traditional skills using hand and power tools. We also offer one of the few Mastery and Distance Mastery Programs in the country for fine furniture making.
