Location: Forest, VA

Grew up in Malvern, Chester Co., PA, on a tree farm.

I only get a few days in the shop each month due to work and travel. My interest is 18'th Century period furniture. Worked in various small garage shops over the past 25 years. Made Windsor chairs for a period of years in Richmond, VA - did the dining room at James Madison's Montpelior estate in Orange, VA and Windsors for other historic sites. At the time that was about all I could make because of my shop limitations. Setting up a new shop now in my basement after not having a workspace for 6 years (long story).

John Fahey, Leo Kottke are my favorites musicians; Interests - used to be a competetive long distance runner; play ice hockey on men's league now; avid reader - history, theology, philosophy, Christian devotional and Bible.
