Welcome to my woodworking site! Feel free to browse around. If there is something you want that you don't see, please ask!

ABOUT ME: I am a disabled veteran, and the wood working is my hobby. My art work is featured in several local galleries, and I have galleries waiting to get my work.

ABOUT THE FRETWORK: Fretwork takes a lot of time and concentration. Each inside cut has to have a pilot hole drilled, and the saw blade fed through it to make the cut, then the blade is removed. Some times with the intricate cutting, you can get to the final few cuts and the wood breaks, ruining the whole piece.

ABOUT THE INTARSIA: Intarsia is a dimensional wood working technique. Each piece of the work is cut out individually from wood that has been selected for the color and grain. This is not like a puzzle that is cut from one piece. It takes skill to cut the pieces precisely so they fit together into the whole. Each piece, once it is cut, is then shaped with a sander, to add dimension to the piece. Stain is added to achieve certain colors, especially the white, then the piece is assembled and glued, then glued onto a backer for support. I have come to love the process that goes into creating these!

Your purchase of my woodwork keeps me in wood and scroll saw blades!
