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...............

A new day, and we are finally ready to start the hinges…........... We left off with gluing the second level of cedar inlay, and letting it dry overnight. We now need to finish sand this inlay level. Once the inlay is smooth, I round over...
Today we are getting ready to start inserting our red cedar inlay into the Maple cover we have made. If you remember we left off with a cover that is roughed out by the laser for our design, and was finish sanded. I do like making inlay tha...
