The process of designing and building furniture puts me in contact with the things I value. The days at the lumber mill, doing business with people I respect and admire. Making simple and intuitive solutions for joinery or surface, decisions that will last with integrity. Hearing the sounds of the wood shavings underneath my feet in the shop alive with the smell of drying lumber and linseed oil. Sensing the dance between myself and the will of the wood grain, while pulling shavings with a well tuned drawknife. These simple acts empower the objects they create. The rocker, cupboard, stool or table that results is witness to these values.
