Woodworking has been a passion of mine since youth. It puzzled me that craftsmen long ago could create such beautiful and durable furniture long before electricity was widely used. I incorporate their techniques in my woodcraft including dovetails and mortise and tenon construction, mostly done by hand. An engineer by training, nothing excites me more than finding a beautiful piece of reclaimed lumber and building something functional that accentuates the natural grain of the wood. You can see some of my creations showcased at Allens Boots – they too value quality materials and artisan crafts.
