Wood lends sense of warmth and natural beauty to our lives. I’ve always been attracted to wooden things, and I take great joy in making wooden furniture and crafts, whether for my own home or yours.

The fun thing about working with wood is that each log or board is unique, with its own attributes and imperfections. What some people view as flaws in the wood, I see as opportunities for creativity, and preservation of the character of the tree.

Most of the wood I use is local, and frequently comes from tree services. That way I’m taking a log that would have been firewood, and giving it another life. Acquiring my own logs and supervising their milling gives me the chance to incorporate whole slabs into my designs, and I feel good about using wood attained locally.

I hope everyone can find something pleasing in my work.
