Since 2010, I've been pursuing a passion for woodworking, learning both modern techniques and traditional hand tool methods for building furniture and trim carpentry. I've been inspired to learn about Chicago's rich Craftsman, Prairie, and Arts & Crafts tradition, and by my own modest 1903 frame house's style and decor. I've applied those aesthetics and philosophies to my own interests, and found a unique outlet to express myself. I now do woodworking and furniture building for myself and for clients. I blog and post about my woodworking adventures at http://dcwwoodworks.com. I'm also a professional computer consultant, and a lifelong musician.

I just posted the next installment of my prairie sofa and love seat build on my blog. A LOT of pictures, discussion of design changes, and the fun of discovering the lumber you thought was awesome sometimes isn’t. http://dcwwoodworks.com/...
I just posted a little story about my recent visit to the Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House, with pictures and some thoughts on the furniture and woodwork, and … RED OAK. http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2015/4/7/the-robie-house-and-...
