My career in wood started 15 years ago on a framing crew pounding nails and carrying lumber. From there I spent time as a finish carpenter and remodeler, building furniture and cabinetry whenever possible. I moved into the wood shop full time in 2006 and have never looked back. Although I have never received formal training, I have been lucky enough to work alongside some very accomplished craftsmen and have strived to gain as much as I can from their mentoring. I also continue to pursue my own education through workshops, seminars, reading, and many hours in the shop.
