I am a reformed metalworker. I'd done that for about 10 years when I got seduced by more natural materials. I do my best to apply my machining and fabricating skills to the art of woodworking. The main reason I switched is the machinery and tools of woodworking arn't as cost prohibitive as mills, lathes, welders and such. I enjoy learning as much as I can from others out there and their beautiful projects. I would say my style is Shaker modern but really it is whatever my wife designs for me to make.

Took the shell to work. Reason? Don’t own a lathe. So i turned it on a big metal engine lathe. I had to clamp it very loose because the 3 jaw chuck was distorting the shape. If I ever make these things for real, I will make a jig to hold the...
I got the partition in today and glued and screwed into the bottom fixed shelf. I ran out of clamps so im going to have to wait till tomorrow before I can attach the piece I am holding in the second picture.
