Every piece of fine hardwood is unique, with an aesthetic driven by color, grain and figure. My goal as a woodworker and box maker, is to enrich that uniqueness by creating a piece art that is pleasing to the eye, functional, and with a quality of craftsmanship and materials that will ensure a lifetime of and use. Thus, every piece I make starts with wood selection. Only when the wood is selected, can I then proceed to the design of the final piece I want to create. As a result, even though individual pieces may look similar at times, each is truly one-of-a-kind.
