My introduction to woodworking began in 8th grade. I really liked the process of working with wood and creating usable objects. The work suited my nature and attention to detail. Over the years, I made furniture for my own home and for family members despite the lack of a shop and power tools.
Having moved from Delray Beach, Florida to Seattle, Washington in 2000, I was fortunate to apprentice with Evert Sodergren, a third generation furniture builder. It was an unparalleled experience and rekindled my passion for woodworking. I learned the finer points of handcrafting fine furniture. After a move to Lawrence, Kansas, and a request from my wife to refashion a failing but loved utensil inherited from my mom, Ida, I found myself employing local wood to create cutting boards, cheeseboards, and kitchen utensils. We began selling them at our local/Lawrence Farmer’s Market and created a successful niche. I continued to make custom furniture upon request – this time with my own shop and power tools! I recently returned to live again in Delray Beach, Florida, and have established a shop locally where the magic still happens this time with my wife Patricia working at my side.
