Been working with wood for 40 years. Mostly self taught. Lived in my shop before we built a house and have 6 kids. Working with quarter sawn white oak and building mission style. Had a fire in 2005 and since then have rebuilt much of our furniture.
Bought wood from saw mills for years, but they cost the same as commericail suppliers for quarter sawn.
Started out working with hand tools, but now have most of the machinery to do what I want. Collected Stanley in the box tools, but lost the best boxes in the fire. Worked as an installer for 15 years, now have a buisness that installs commercial woodwork.
Currently making 15 Stickley style chairs.
