I've always loved making things. It took a while to figure out I preferred making things out of wood but when I did everything seemed to click in place.
I've always loved the look and feel of wood, especially when turned into a beautiful object, so for the past 15 years or so I have been making boxes out of hard woods. All kinds of boxes, from very small to blanket chest size. My designs tend to be simple, as I want the wood to be the focal point.
I’m drawn to traditional joinery, the kind built to last. Japanese temples in particular have always felt magical to me, the great attention and care their builders took to ensure they’d survive for centuries.
My intentions are to sculpturally marry wood and stone. I have two such sculptural projects started. In woodworking I have a walnut mantle in the layout stage and a Shaker style headboard in the imagining stage.
While I am not actively seeking employment, I would enjoy receiving a few commissions to build garden gates.
