My approach to the craft of fine woodworking is simple: I make each item as if it were my own. Durability, practicality, and artistic beauty are the foundations of my work. I begin by selecting the finest materials from a variety of domestic and imported hardwoods. I combine traditional and modern woodworking techniques. I attended the University of California at Davis and studied furniture design. I have exhibited at the American Craft Council shows for 40 years.
