My work seeks to bring a bit of beauty to your home.

My journey into woodworking started around 2012. At that time, I purchased a wood lathe and started to make bowls and other decorative pieces. I eventually became interested in furniture making and design, as well as the history of a number of design movements. Taking classes, building pieces for my home, and reading magazines, blogs from other woodworkers, and books added fuel to the fire.

I bring a few principles to my making. Items that I make are designed and built to last. Too often, the things that we bring into our lives are disposable. A cheaply made item may last only a few uses before it breaks, contributing to the waste on natural resources and money. By focusing on quality, I seek to make items that will be worthy of handing down to future generations.

I primarily build spec pieces. However, if you are interested in a custom piece of furniture, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.

    I find inspiration for my work from the Arts and Crafts Movement and the words of William Morris: "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful."
