Location: North Carolina

My love for woodworking began in high school which had a well equipped industrial arts classroom, a shop teacher with a missing finger (RAS), and offered courses in architectural and mechanical drawing, woodworking and woodturning. After taking every course offered, I tried to repeat them but wasn't allowed so I used to sneak in while Mr. Wilson was at lunch and build stuff. After 4 years in the Army, Airborne Infantry, I went to school for CADD but couldn't get a job doing it. Went back to school for biology but didn't want to count owl poop in the woods so I went into printing. Meanwhile did apartment woodworking for a number of years, building simple shelves, DVD racks, and step stools. After buying a house with a separate shop I began making furniture for the house. Briefly I offered my services for commission -- very briefly. These days I make whatever suits my fancy from shop layout tools, boxes, turned projects and more.
