Location: Allegan, Michigan

I do many different types of woodworking, from antique repair, chair caning & rushing, to tunings, for repair or demonstration, to build cabinets for TVs & bookcases, to carving on clock shelves. We work with all types of tools, from wooden planes to power tablesaws, and many spots inbetween.

I also run the woodworking shop in our historical villiage at the Allegan Co. fairgrounds run by the Allegan Co Historical Society. Been working with wood for about 35 years but there is always time to learn something new, I am not real old, just started young. and still enjoy doing the work.

My latest big boy toy is a 1870's treadle (foot powered) jigsaw that is my swmbo's great uncle's, who I knew years before her. hopefully we will restore it to original this summer and me and the boys will use it again in September at the fair.
I also have a website for our original and reproduction hardware for furniture and homes along with chair seating lamp parts
