Location: Ozark County Missouri
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.
