About

Full time Kentucky Woodworker ~ Part Time Photographer

My woodworking career began in the mid 90's after leaving the U.S. Air Force. I've always appreciated the Shaker style furniture, it's utilitarian usefulness, yet simplistic design. I began building a few pieces for the home, based on that look. Eventually, I created a small line of that style and sold them to various dealers throughout Kentucky. After building hundreds of pieces over a roughly seven year period, I was looking for something new to try. Over the years I had been putting aside small "interesting" pieces of wood that wasn't large enough for use in furniture building. I had seen an article in a magazine for a beautiful cutting board, so I gave it a try. I suppose that's where I got my start in making cutting boards. Just guessing I've probably made thousands over the years-and I still enjoy making them.

I have been blessed to have been raised in Kentucky, a place that is rich and abundant in beautiful hardwoods. Kentucky has species of trees that are perfect for cutting boards, and I might add, trees that yield beautiful colors and contrasts in the wood itself.

What I like most about making these boards is the challenge of getting just the right balance and placement of colors, attempting to create a perfectly "harmonious" piece of work. I must add, if you see any beauty, any talent in my work, I acknowledge it's from the Lord, and it has been given, borrowed if you will, from Him!

My greatest joy is shipping these to homes all over America and receiving such wonderful feedback-it really doesn't get much better than that!
