Thank you for checking out my projects. It took over 20 years living in the High Desert of Central Oregon before realizing the beauty hidden under the ugly bark of the Juniper Tree. Most people living here consider juniper trees as just a weed,....intrusive, dirty, and used mostly for firewood and fence posts....and for the most part I would agree. But there is some amazing beauty to be found among these trees when you know where to look....and the first day I discovered it I knew I had just learned what my creative style would be inspired by. I spent several years clear cutting hundreds of acres of juniper for improving range management and watershed projects with such a blind eye to the possibilities for the twisted limbs left behind. With a new outlook on these trees I see projects everywhere. I made my first project in July of 2010 and hope to keep raising the bar on quality and complexity with each piece. Thanks again for looking, I hope you enjoy watching these projects as much as I like building them.
