I am a self taught woodworker from North Carolina. I have a wife, two sons and a daughter. I got the woodworking bug from my father. I have been building furniture seriously for 15 years. Although I am a full time electrician, furniture building is my passion. I have been able to build a handful of commisioned pieces. I love the design to build process and prefer to build original pieces.
