As far back as I can remember I have always loved being around wood. Whether it be spending hours, or in some case days, in the woods fishing, hiking etc. The smell of the trees or getting out of my Dad's truck at a saw mill and stepping onto all the wood chips in the yard and then seeing all the different types of woods being processed. In high school I took a woodworking class and made my Mother a napkin-holder out of a piece of pine. Using all the different types of machinery simply mesmerized me. After leaving high school I went to work building houses. I later started my own business building houses and about 14 years ago a friend showed me how to turn a segmented candy dish on a lathe; that I also gave to my Mom. Segmented turning has become my passion and enables me to incorporate the past, present, and future into timeless pieces. I guess the rest is history!
