My background is in construction. I learned carpentry on the job and out of books. Seeking more education about design and construction, I went to graduate school to study architecture. After school I built houses for a while. When the interest rates went off the charts in 1977 I started to remodel houses and found that people wanted special built-ins here and there. Not finding any cabinet maker that would do it like I thought it would best be done. I began to make built-in and that morphed into making furniture. That became my love for many years.
However recently I have started making ukuleles and find that to be a whole new universe of wonder.
