I began my professional career as an elementary school teacher. I taught elementary school for 9 years and spent many summers teaching myself woodworking. With a patient wife, a little luck, and hard work, my passion for woodworking became a full-time profession. I've been designing and building custom furniture and gifts for over 15 years. 

I've always loved building things and figuring out how things work. I first became interested in woodworking to learn how to build furniture. This hobby quickly turned into a passion that I've made into my career. Contact me to begin designing furniture that will fit your space perfectly!

I first started making toys for my nieces and nephews at Christmastime. Then, in 2018, I began to design toys with an emphasis on durability and safety. Since that time, I've grown the number of designs based on customer feedback. All toys now come personalized with a name engraving of your choice. 

For me, new ideas grow from opportunity to give a gift. I designed the first wooden wall art for my wife as a Christmas present. Each piece of wall art utilizes numerous pieces of thick slices, or veneers, of wood that are made into a picture. Individual pieces of veneer are dyed and glued to create the image. Finally, each piece is framed in a custom walnut frame.
