I grew up a farm boy in Illinois. Served aboard the USS Boston then went back to school and was hired as an engineer. I found my calling in X-ray medical systems and spent 40 years in New England hospitals installing and servicing those systems. Building things is in my DNA so woodworking satisfies that itch now that I am retired. I particularly enjoy boxes because I can stretch the envelope. I am a member of Guild of N.H. Woodworkers as well as the League. My boxes are solid wood, environmentally friendly and built to be passed on to other generations. I will build specialty boxes. My hope is that "you find your box to be as important to you as what it contains".
