Art in Wood
"Just because a tree appears dead, has fallen over, or been damaged, doesn't mean it's life is over. I'll find something that it can become so that it can live another hundred years - maybe more"
One of a kind creations in wood . . .
Wood has always intrigued me. Starting with orange crates from the corner market, my interest and opportunities grew slowly. A project for my girls with pine from the lumber yard and borrowed tools, picking up a used tool now and again. It was a chance encounter with a friend that clicked all kinds of switches in my head - we attempted to make ski-waxing benches out of hard maple. The project was less than successful, but the friend, Phil Van Valkenburg was trained as a machinist, and he pointed out to me that precision machining principles could apply to wood - what has followed is a great adventure fueled by curiosity and challenges.
