My work is best described as “my personal journey into woodworking through understanding and learning about trees”. Whether it’s ditch wood from the side of the road, a pilfered scrap from someone’s firewood pile, reclaimed materials from work or friends, or even a several hundred dollar exotic burl (ethically harvested of course) I want to see whats inside! Nature gives us incredible designs, colors, textures, and even smells! All are hidden inside every piece of wood and it’s my passion to find the best way to present it.

My focus is mainly turned wooden objects ranging from burial urns to salad bowls. But I also enjoy making several functional art pieces like furniture to hand-carved eating utensils. I want people to see and use my work while gaining an appreciation for the natural beauty all around us. Man has no debt older or deeper than that which he owes to trees and their wood.
