I was introduced to woodworking by my father at a young age. I was taught traditional finish carpentry techniques and work values. Many pieces we created have lasted the test of time and are over 30 years old. Over the years, I improved my knowledge and skill set to include wood turning and lathe work.
I took a break to go to school, spend 20 years in the fire service, and start a family. Now that my son is grown and I have the necessary time, I decided it was time to get back in to the craft. I will be focusing lathe work(bowls/handles) and small housewares but larger custom pieces are definitely up for discussion.
