Woodworking has always been a hobby for me but now that I am in my 50’s, my life path seems to be pulling me back around to woodworking. After I rebuilt my wife’s entire kitchen to custom specifications I realized that wood was calling to me again.
I hope you enjoy my shop, please know that you can contact me about any custom made products you may want.
And as always look for more to come as my imagination wanders.
Thank You,
Brian
