James Beckwith's Profile
I have actively pursued woodworking for over 40 years with great experience in remodeling, cabinetry, custom furniture and crafts. My shop is filled with about every tool imaginable and provides to ability to make just about anything that someone comes up with as a desired completed project.
My favorite wood medium is red oak, however, wild cherry is quickly taking over that #1 spot. Cherry is a beautiful wood to work with, especially if you can get into the figured parts of the tree and secure a large enough piece to really make it stand out. I also spend a good amount of time with ash, walnut and a number of exotic woods including Purple Heart, Massaranduba, Padouk, Brazilian Cherry, Zebrawood, and Bubinga.
