Announcement    Fernweh Woodworking began in 2015, and I call my role "Designer/Craftsman" because I cherish both the woodworking and design elements of the company. A former Marine Officer, I have a bachelor's degree in business from Purdue University, and I'm a self-taught woodworker. I'm inspired by the ethical design philosophy and work of Sam Maloof, and I particularly admire the legacy and designs of Hans Wegner.

I view myself as just a beginner woodworker and designer, and to some extent I hope to always feel that way; no matter how much you learn, you should always be overwhelmed and excited by the oceans of things yet to be discovered. I hope to do my small part to keep the craft of woodworking not only alive, but fresh.

Fernweh Woodworking began in 2015, and I call my role "Designer/Craftsman" because I cherish both the woodworking and design elements of the company. A former Marine Officer and woodland firefighter with a bachelor's degree in business from Purdue University, I stumbled into what I hope will be a lifelong design & woodworking career. I'm self-taught in both respects, and am inspired by the ethical design philosophy and work of Sam Maloof, and I particularly admire the legacy and designs of Finn Juhl and Hans Wegner.
