I've been involved in woodworking and design since I was a boy. I'm nearing retirement age and have recently started my own woodworking business. I've always loved the look and feel of wood. I marvel that the grain of wood is always different from each board to another. Each piece is unique and possesses its own character. I believe that the woods grain should be emphasized in the pieces I create. I think it's almost sinful to cover natural wood with paint.
My first real woodworking project was in shop class in junior high school. I remember my instructor clearly and know that he had a positive influence on me that has lasted a lifetime.He helped me design and build a shoeshine box. I still have it and use it frequently. Since those early days I've designed and built literally hundreds of things, ranging from small hand-carved items to jewelry boxes, furniture, cabinetry, and even a few buildings.
My love for wood and all the beautiful and functional things which can be created from it has continued to grow over the years. I look forward to sharing my experiences with others who share my love for woodworking.
