I suppose I'd describe myself as an avid woodworker, blogger, and marketer. It's a bit tough balancing my weekend job, night job, and weekend job, but I'm doing what I love. I'm most inspired by traditional design, but with a modern twist. Much of my work is done in walnut and cherry, as I prefer minimalistic finishes with an accent on the wood itself. I would say I have a bit of a Moserian philosophy on the craft. I also run a video blog on woodworking at www.theboisshop.com. This started as a way of just documenting the work I was doing in the shop, but has turned into as much of a passion for me as the woodworking itself.

This is a recent blog post I did covering the haunched tenons for the cabinet doors for a six-leg sideboard I am building. This is actually episode 9 of probably about a dozen, but this one stands well on its own since it covers a common joint fo...
I’m actually about half-way along in this project, but will try to get all caught up in this first entry. I call this a wine secretary since it is a wine cabinet for my dining room that is basically modeled after a traditional drop-front se...
