I am an ex Hollywood film worker turned artist. I specialized in leather tooling until moving to South West Missouri where there is an abundant supply of red cedar. Now I build rustic furniture.

The grandfather who helped raise me was a furniture builder who was born not far from here so I guess I have come full circle.

I use a mixture of old world and modern tooling and am doing my best to make a full time living by building various types of rustic furniture out of the materials I am surrounded by.

I originally came to LJ to learn how to improve my designs and found there was not a lot of information here on the types of things I wanted to do. Having been gone from here a while, I have returned after finding my own answers via the school of hard knocks.

I am happy to answer any questions people may have about rustic furniture. My first book is nearing completion and I will soon be releasing how to videos on youtube.

Your cedar supply sounds like a lot. When I used to live in St. Louis I bought my cedar from a sawmill that only cut cedar. All their scraps were chipped up and put in bags for pet bedding.

I’d pay 25 cents a bd ft for the stuff and everything was 1” and 6” wide. I did pick up some 2X12 planks. i never used them i sold them when I moved to New Jersey. The only wood i took with me was some 2” maple and my walnut and cherry.
