Hold an irreplaceable, hand crafted article in your hands, your fingers spindling the textures and consciously weighing it and determining that its made of quality materials and you will realize its creator truly cared about its value. Quality has a unique feel, an unmistakable heftiness that lets you know it is real and of value! So come on into our shop, kick the tires and find something special for yourself or a loved one.

By profession, I have done everything from being a commercial pilot to managing a large FedEx air sort operation to being a flight controller and driving eighteen wheelers. Oddly enough, I hold a BS degree in Architectural Woodwork and possess a unique outlook on woodworking and incorporating alternate materials with natural wood. I operate out of my home shop and studio and love to create quality products that last a lifetime!

Thank you for taking the time to read a little about my shop.
