The sound of a keenly sharpened plane neatly removing a translucent shaving from the edge of a board allowing it to finally slide seamlessly into its new home. The warm feel of a smooth wood surface and soft edges leading to a subtle curve. The scent of camphor or cedar filling the air when a small drawer is opened. The deep richness of a solid frame and luster of the changing grain patterns in a door panel.
These experiences fill my senses during my wood working and make me happy. I spend this time creating functional pieces for people to admire and use every day. I am inspired by iconic designs from previous eras and enjoy reinterpreting their form with beautiful woods and adapting their function to meet modern needs.
