Location: Bucks County, PA

I've been woodworking for over 45 years and while I have done many commissioned pieces I currently work for my number one client only (my wife!). I have a degree in mechanical engineering and my day job is outsourcing for a pharmaceutical company.

I am just putting the finishing touches on my fourth wood shop after moving a few years ago. Each one seems to get a little bigger and I'm up to a bit over 500 sq ft now.

Favorite tool at the moment: my Powermatic 22/44 drum sander, what a time saver!

Most challenging project: A cherry sleigh bed with curved laminated panels and a 16/4 crest rail shaped with a router and hand scrapers.

Latest build: a pair of Greene & Greene display tables in cherry.

Next project in the queue: a Thorsen inspired dining table

I don’t know how I came across your profile… but I saw the profile picture and literally laughed out loud. :) haha it’s just that awesome.

I’m going to go check out your projects! With so many years experience I bet I’ll find some really beautiful work.

Take care!

Thanks Cathie! Unfortunately, most of my best work sits in other peoples homes, not mine. Wish I had taken more pictures.
