I live in Brentwood, CA. My interests in woodworking started with around the house projects and then drifted into guitar building. I am fascinated by the amazing wood boxes people make and I am trying to learn more about joinery. Making guitars helped me to understand finishing, routing and spray finishing, which I have used on a few refinishing projects.

The arts and crafts, mission, craftsman style appeals to me and those pieces somehow speak to me. I'd like to work on more of this style. I built a couple mirrors and a frames, but I'd like to move up to furniture. I like the smell of oak as well. I spent one morning last summer working in the garage with oak and then my girlfriend took me wine tasting. For the first time in my life I could relate to the descriptions they were giving- when he said it had hints of oak from the barrels I thought- yes, it does taste like my garage smells.
