A True Passion for Woodworking
For me, woodworking is a passion. What started out as a bit of necessary hobby, with the purchase of my first house, kept growing as a passion to learn more, build more and push the boundaries of my own skills. The satisfaction of starting with a rough piece of wood and working it into something I built with my own hands is not something I get tired of. I continue to learn, grow and perfect my skills with every piece I build.
All project journeys start and end with one thing, the wood. I hand select each piece, from the rough, in order to get the best color and grain matching possible. I then sketch out where each piece of the project will come from which board. I then mill the lumber myself so I can see what each piece reveals under the rough exterior and begin to see how each of the parts will come together to form a singular finished product. Building the piece is just the first step; each piece must then be finished. I use finishes that are proven to bring out the natural beauty of the wood, not a multi step manufactured process like in the big box stores. The carefully selected wood deserves a finish that allows it to show its true nature. I focus on using natural oils and clear finishes, not stains and gels that cover the wood's natural character.
I build almost anything! I have done everything from a basic cutting board to bedside and coffee tables to cribs and beds. Check out the Gallery page to see some examples.
