About

I’ve always considered myself to be a unique person, and woodworking is one avenue by which I can express that individuality.  My love for the craft started when I was very young, in my grandfathers cramped basement workshop.  I fondly remember the smells and sounds as he crafted items from bird houses to porch swings.  Two and a half decades later, and I find myself wanting to follow in his footsteps.  I am writing this blog in hopes that I can inspire others to creatively express their own unique talents.

  1. Hi Patrick,

    I didn’t know how to reply directly to you from “Lost Art Press.” So I thought I would post a reply here…

    “…You might want to go see what they’re up to! Perhaps you will like their blog as much as they liked your comment!…”

    Thanks for that…I do follow them and know of them (indirectly) through some of my students, clients and the design/furniture world…Any of us in this “Urban Forestry” and “Slab Wood” sourcing realm tend to know each other…I have been in and out of it now for over 30 years. Now that I am actully doing it on a “commercial level” again, we all seem to find each other. It is even getting competitive in some areas, yet our market is so unique (green woodworking, timber framing, bespoke design furniture) that our business and use of materials tends to put us on a different playing field…

    Thanks for reaching out…

    Regards,

    j
