Artist, and woodworking instructor. I also enjoy Hang Gliding, Electronics, and have a small Metal Lathe, and now a CNC Micro Mill.
I build both smaller pieces as well as furniture and larger works. I share a studio at a local Gallery with 3 other artists.
I take commissions for various woodworking and SketchUp Designs.
