Location: Georgetown University, Washington DC

My folks are artists and musicians and I ended up with degrees in both. I teach multimedia and digital art for the most part, but usually can't wait to get my hands back into the living materials! From my father's land I usually end up with bits of Louisiana black walnut, bois d'arc, pecan, holly, black locust to work with. I do sculpture, musical instruments and occasional bits of furniture for the wife and friends.
I'm currently working on a research project recreating 17th century woodwinds in the traditionally used woods including laburnum, yew, pear, plum, bog oak, elder(?), box, lignum vitae, cocuswood, partridgewood and ebony. Of course, many of the old documents pointing to these botanics are vague at best. It's great finding you guys.

Thanks for the welcome LJ folks. I’m sure I haven’t gotten the hang of this group yet because I’ve had a number of post notices in my email account that don’t show up on this page?
