By day (and most nights, too), I am an assistant professor of Computer Science at the State University of New York in Oswego. I moved here in the Fall of 2007. Prior to that, I spent some wonderful years in West Lafayette, IN where I was both a doctoral student and visiting professor at Purdue University. Go Boilermakers! I grew up in Philadelphia and also lived in Baltimore, MD for a number of years.
My primary woodworking interest is building furniture for my home, although I have built other pieces that were given to friends as gifts. I'm not a professional, although technically I did sell a bookcase I made at a yard saIe. :-)
I'm a great fan of the Arts and Crafts style and am embarking on the creation of a number of such pieces. These will be my most challenging projects to date, and I will be detailing their design and progress in forum posts.
In addition to the above, I also enjoy playing guitar, bicycling, and kayaking.
Thank you for visiting my profile and for the warm welcome to LJ!

Ok. One of the things I’ve asked myself when designing this project is, “How are stretchers linked together?” In particular, I wondered how to handle intersections of three and four stretchers. I didn’t include this in the ...
I didn’t realize it had been so long since I posted my last entry. Well, life takes over, I guess. Anyway, there is some more progress to report. About a month ago, I was looking for uphostery foam online when I realized there was a problem ...
This is my first blog entry describing my summer woodworking project. My wife and I love Arts and Crafts furniture, and so we’ve decided to build ourselves a sectional settle inspired by these classic designs. I began with the Prairie Sofa d...
