Location: Plymouth, Connecticut

I am a precision tool & die maker by trade, and have been engineering all types of projects for over 32 years. I have always been excited about woodworking. My passion centers around making fine wood products out of native wood species of the Northeast Region.

The wood I use is harvested right here in the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut. To me nothing is more gratifying than creating beautiful pieces from trees that were cut by your own saw.

My shop is centered around a large format laser, capable of machining/engraving an 11" thick x 24"wide x 36" long object. Coupled with the fine woodworking techniques I employ the laser is helping me add unique detail, and custom features in my work.

My hope is to start creating furniture by next winter when I finish building my new maple wood working bench...............

No website at this time, as I would rather spend my time in the shop. Thank you all for your kind words, and thanks for the warm welcome!

Welcome. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Work safe in the shop and don’t forget to use pushsticks.
I so much enjoyed looking at your projects and wow, what a nice workshop.
