I was born and raised in Chicago and moved to New Mexico in 1988. Owning my own business was something I have always wanted to do. In 2010 my job went away and my daughter was born. Having gone through a layoff before,right before we got married, my wife and I decided I should make Etsy my full time job. If you had told me I would end up as a woodworker when I was young I wouldn't have believed you! My dad was a truck driver and that's what I did early on.
I have been working with reclaimed wood and barn wood since my wife,Brenda, introduced me to it 20 years ago. The character and charm of old wood can't be beat. Knots,nail holes,knot holes,great colors and a hard to describe, comfortable well worn feeling make it so much better than new wood. There is always something unique about each frame or shelf.
