Experience the Process

People love visiting my studio. They always comment on the amazing smell of freshly milled lumber and are often in awe at some of the pieces being made. Pandemic times make stopping by less viable, so I’ve decided to bring my studio to you. Via photos and videos of cool new pieces in process, you’ll have all but the smell. Check in often for updates.
