Location: Richmond,VA

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.
