I began my furniture maker apprenticeship under a local master furniture maker in Vermont while still in high school. Upon completing the required 8000 hour furnituremaker apprenticeship program, I became the first to achieve Vermont State certification. My 5 year journeymanship followed, beginning in Vermont and extending to Naples, FL. Finally, in 2004, my dream of being a Master furnituremaker came true when I opened my first shop in Naples, FL. In 2010, I expanded that dream by relocating back to the forests, this time, in the Western North Carolina town of Black Mountain. Featured in the 2011 issue of style 1900 arts and craft magazine!

My mission as a furniture maker is to work with you to create quality heirloom fine furniture for the enjoyment of you and your family, lasting for generations to follow. I am a furniture maker that builds traditional craft furniture using mortise and tenon joinery and hand rubbed oil finishes. Every custom made piece of furniture that I build begins with first discussing with my clients and determining their needs and desires, then hand selecting only the finest lumber for the job, and finishing each piece with a signature and date. I strive to create the finest decorative but functional furniture that you will find anywhere. Also, one of the things that I keep in mind as a fine furniture maker is that while building, I use many made in America and local products.
