I started really woodworking after I bought my first house and had space for a wood shop. Like my father I have collected a fairly extensive set of tools as hand-me-downs and new. I like to keep everything as organized as I can. I have built cabinets, bookcases, nightstands, outdoor furniture, pens, bowls and even a few bars. I have sold a few of the things that I built but, until now I haven't had a place to really display them in a store enviornment.

Almost all of the wood i get is local. The only real exceptions is the exotic woods that just don't grow here. I regularly check internet listings, like craigs list for people that…

I started really woodworking after I bought my first house and had space for a wood shop. Like my father I have collected a fairly extensive set of tools as hand-me-downs and new. I like to keep everything as organized as I can. I have built cabinets, bookcases, nightstands, outdoor furniture, pens, bowls and even a few bars. I have sold a few of the things that I built but, until now I haven't had a place to really display them in a store enviornment.

Almost all of the wood i get is local. The only real exceptions is the exotic woods that just don't grow here. I regularly check internet listings, like craigs list for people that have cut down a tree and don't know what to do with the logs. I go pick them up and turn the logs into usable lumber or cut them for specific projects. It is a lot more work, obviously, but a lot of the material that I use I would not be able to find/buy anywhere. Plus there is the anticipation and excitment that you get when you cut a log in half and see what it really looks like. It might not sound all that exciting to you, but I definetly get excited to see what the wood really looks like on the inside. Sometimes it's boring or buggy, but other times it is truly stunning. The worse it looks on the outside the better the inside usually looks.

The projects that I make, I make because I like them and I want to see how they come out. I have made plenty of projects that didn't "make the cut". Some because I didn't put enough thought into the design, and some because my mind is more creative than my hands. Some projects come out better then the design, that is always a happy accident.

I hope you enjoy the projects I have listed here as much as I have enjoyed building/creating them. If you see something that you like but would like to make an alteration/addition to, don't hesitate to ask.
