Woodworking

Designing and building furniture affords me the challenge and opportunity to solve problems within a different medium. Following the manta of “Always Be Learning”, woodworking allows one to define clear goals for a project that can be built with multiple techniques, tools, and methods. As an artist and creator, deriving instant feedback whilst having a piece to share with others is priceless. I have practiced improving my skills by building an array of furniture, commissioned pieces, gifts, and prototypes. Commissioned work affords me the ability to learn, solve interesting problems, and buy better tools.
