Most of my early working with wood was as a do-it-yourselfer, making furniture, cabinets or whatever else we needed around the house. However, for the past 14 years, I have concentrated on designing and building wooden boxes. A box is the ideal vehicle for combining functionality with the elegance and beauty of wood.
When building a box, I start with the wood itself. I look for unique or interesting color, texture or grain pattern. I often prefer compatible but contrasting woods that in combination create a striking or sometimes subtle visual affect. Once I have selected the wood, then I begin to think of the box that will best utilize and highlight it. Size and shape are adjusted to fit the wood. As a result, even the same or similar design becomes a unique, one-of-a-kind box when completed.
My work has been featured in Woodcraft Magazine as well as Sterling Publishing’s recently published 14 Wooden Boxes You Can Make.

Posted in my shop and on my business cards is a quote from the late Louis Nizer that I find inspiring:

“A man who works with his hands is a laborer; A man who works with his hands and his mind is a craftsman; But a man who works with his hands, his mind and his heart, is an artist”.

-- Bob
