Where I work . . .

My wife and I live in the country midway between the two small towns we grew up in.  The quiet environment offers us the privacy we relish, and allows us to meet our worlds on our terms.  My shop isn't large but it is equipped with everything from 18th & 19th century hand tools, (some from my great grandfather) to the most modern power tools, including a CNC router with 48" x 54" capabilities.  I built the shop (my third) the way I wanted, mostly by my own hand.  The things that I left to others were those that required a ladder.​

  • Lathe work - segmented turning, spindles, furniture parts, vessels and bowls. 
  • Furniture - period chairs, occasional tables,  - especially things no one else would think of! 
  • CNC Router work - inlays, wooden signs, plaques, brass and copper engraving - if you can imagine it, I can probably do it.
  • Component parts - I regularly duplicate repair parts for musical instruments, replacement spindles and parts for chairs, stools or tables - the old favorite chair isn't necessarily off it's rockers for good!
  • Institutional work, including museum quality components, restorations and upgrades.
