My name is David Coburn. I live with my wife and three kids in Stonebridge Ranch of McKinney, Tx. We came to Texas back in 2000 and have since brought one "real" Texan into the world. We all love it here and it is now honestly called "home".
After high school I joined the US Navy and did a tour on the aircraft carrier: USS America - CV66. I received an honorable discharge and went to work as an aviational tig welder. After a few years some things fell together and I was able to go to college. I received a BS and then a MS in Electrical Engineering and have been working as an engineer ever since.
I've been building furniture for a little over 15 years and currently have a fully equipped shop where I spend as many spare hours as I can. I've seen the work on this site and know there are some really outstanding woodworkers here. I hope to learn as much as possible from you guys and I hope that I can be a benefit to some of you... My experience ranges from small jewelry boxes and humidors up to 7' tall bookcases and armoires.
My own inclinations have led me to a more modern and/or contemporary styling. At the same time I have to admit I very much like building smaller 18th century pieces like colonial Pipe and Candle boxes or Spice Cabinets. I've built many of both as you can see from the portfolio section on my website... but... I find that more often than not I'm working on another studio type wall or standing cabinet, often with a particular theme.
