Location: South Carolina

I am a professional woodworker, who does a variety of commissioned woodworking projects for interior designers. I also do antique restoration and conservation. I pretty much do whatever the need calls for at the time and it has forced me to be less specialized and a lot more versatile. I feel like that in this economy you need to be able to switch gears quickly if you want to make a living with your hands. Some of the services I offer include hand-rubbed finishes, faux painting, stripping, furniture regluing and repair, chair caning, rush seat weaving, lamp making and repair, spindle turning, sign making, installing crown molding, and a large variety of other things. I sometimes am called upon to do consultations and often give free advice. I am always glad to help.
