For people living in the High Desert of Central Oregon, the Juniper Tree is generally consider a weed,....intrusive, dirty, often considered ugly,...its impact on our range lands, water sheds, and wildlife has been studied in our Universities and Land Management offices, and is a constant nuisance to perceptive ranchers who depend on the desert grasses that compete for the water and soil the junipers overtake to raise their herds on. Its practical use is for firewood and fence posts, and for the creative type it is an artistic wood used for unconventional furniture, cabinetry, and sculpture. There is some amazing beauty to be found among these trees when you know how and where to look. I spent several years clear cutting hundreds of acres of juniper improving range lands without a second thought to what the twisted limbs left behind could be used for. For me, the discovery of what I found under the ugly bark of these trees was an inspiration that has shaped not only the projects I create, but more importantly defines a unique contrast in perspective that I relate to for purpose and philosophy of life. I built my first project in July of 2010 and hope to keep raising the bar on quality, creativity, and purpose with each piece. Thank you for taking the time to check out my work, I hope you enjoy these projects as much as I like building them.
