Wood brings out the maker in us. We followed the impulse as children to cut, carve, nail together found pieces of wood to make something wonderful. I am fortunate to have returned to this beautiful material. Now, knowledge and skill are my main tools in working with it. Having a background in architecture, I approach woodworking alert to the need of matching competent design with technical proficiency in execution. The context is important and never to be ignored; however, within it I strive for simplicity, aware that what I build is a setting for living and it need not be cluttered.
