Some of the most pro-dominant memories of my childhood was watching the New Yankee Workshop on sunday mornings with my dad. At summer camp I would find myself spending most of my free activity time in the workshop making simple small projects out of scrap wood with hand tools. But I didn't discover my passion for fine woodworking until my junior year in High school when i dropped a trigonometry class and picked up the only available course, basic wood-shop. The next year I took advanced woods and built the bar listed in "my projects". From then on I accumulated more and more tools and continued to build in my garage and research the subject.
I Graduated from the University of Dayton in 2008 with a double major in Marketing and Entrepreneurship and started a one man woodworking company in the summer of '09. The business is called Heirloom Fine Woodworks. Ultimately, I would like to do away with custom building pieces and only build my personal designs and sell them out of a furniture gallery that I hope to some day own.
I am inspired by the big names, Sam Maloof, Krenov, etc. but mostly the members of LJ's are the biggest influence to date.
