I'm currently a fourth year mathematics Ph.D. student at the University of Notre Dame. Right now I am studying Lie algebras and algebraic groups, but I have an interest in Algebra and Topology in general.
I'm married to Skyler for almost three years now, and we recently had a baby girl! Ada Elayne was born September 13, 2011.
Aside from mathematics, I enjoy programming, board games, and of course woodworking.

Tonight I started my saw till. It’s been a long time coming, let me tell you. I’ve had 3 full-size hand saws and 2 backsaws for a while now, but I was putting off making a place for them to live for lots of reasons. Primarily, most ...
I was out at the local hardwood dealer picking up some purpleheart, when I saw this sticking out of a bin. It’s very rough sawn (actually, it almost looks like it came off of a pallet somewhere), and someone had written “Jarrah? $1R...
I’m going on vacation in a few weeks, and I have been concerned about time away from the shop while I’m gone (I’m sure many of you can relate). I figured that this would be the perfect time to learn to chip carve, since I can eas...
