Finding purpose is sometimes difficult. I grew up with a carpenter for a father, but never took much of an interest in woodworking. After blowing around from college to the corporate world, I found woodworking to be the only thing that could anchor me, and after finding this new direction, I have loved every minute of it since.
My shop gives me the energy and inspiration to express myself both technically and creatively. It's here that I found my people, my place, and my niche.
Most of the items you see here are constructed from reclaimed planks of old barns in Metro Atlanta, which I obtained permission to use. Through this medium, I find beauty in re-purposing and bringing new life back to the materials which some would otherwise consider useless.
Grace and Peace,
